Negros Occidental Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson said local chief executives who are senior citizens can be vaccinated against COVID-19 after the health care workers.
That is because the next category for vaccination is senior citizens and the national Inter-Agency Task Force has okayed the inclusion of local chief executives in that category, he said.
Lacson, 61, said he wants to be vaccinated but he is conscious of the opinion of the public and wants to know how they feel.
An additional 7,200 vials of the Sinovac vaccines arrived in Iloilo City Tuesday for distribution to various provinces and highly urbanized cities of Western Visayas.*
