Navotas City prepared a list of residents who will be prioritized once the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccine becomes available in the country, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

During his meeting with the city’s health department, Mayor Toby Tiangco said, they agreed that frontline health workers will be the top priority, to be followed by indigent senior citizens, other senior citizens, and other members of the indigent population.

Tiangco said, the following will also be prioritized:

• Uniformed personnel, such as police, military, and firefighters

• Teachers and school health workers

• All national and local government workers in the city

• Essential workers in agriculture, food, transportation, and tourism industries

• Persons deprived of liberty and persons with disability

• Residents living in crowded areas

• Overseas Filipino Workers

• Other workers

• Students

Tiangco, in coming up with the list, said that the number of vaccine doses that will be coming soon is not yet enough to cover the city’s 267,000 residents.

“Pinakauna ay ang ating mga public at private medical frontliners dahil sila po ang may pinakamataas na tsansa ng exposure sa COVID-19. Importante po na proteksyunan natin ang mga nag-aalaga sa atin (Our top priority will be our public and private medical frontliners because they have high exposure to COVID-19. It’s important to protect those who take care of us),” he said.

Tiangco urged his constituents to pre-register for the city’s vaccination program through: https://bit.ly/3qm2SYD.
