Calapan City Mayor Arnan Panaligan has attended the recent online assembly of the League of Cities of the Philippines to discuss vaccination plans of local governments.

The LCP Special General Assembly was presided over by LCP President Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia.

Guests at the meeting were Commission on Audit Chairman Michael Aguinaldo and National Task Force on Covid-19 Chairman Sec. Carlito Galvez.

“COA Chairman Aguinaldo said that COA will issue uniform guidelines to facilitate the procurement of anti Covid-19 vaccines by local government units,” Panaligan’s office said.

“Sec. Galvez announced that approved vaccines from Pfizer and Astra Zeneca will start arriving starting the first quarter and that vaccination rollout will follow subsequently. He asked the LGUs to start preparing for the vaccination soon,” it added.

The City Government of Calapan earlier allocated an initial amount of P25 Million for the procurement of anti COVID-19 vaccines.
