The Department of the Interior and Local Government commended select local government units for their innovative and reliable vaccination rollout programs.
One of the applauded LGUs was the municipality of San Quintin in Abra, where they have arranged to store the vaccines in a freezer with the prescribed temperature. The LGU has a generator set in case of power interruption.
DILG Spokesperson Jonathan Malaya also reminded other LGUs to ensure regular updating and monitoring of their respective COVID-19 vaccination monitoring system.
“It is very important that the information in your areas is updated so that the national government knows if you still have a supply of vaccines, how many people have been vaccinated and how many thousands will be vaccinated, or do we need to deploy more staff to help with vaccinations. in your areas,” he said.
