THE City Government of Caloocan has expressed readiness to inoculate those belonging to A4 priority group or essential workers if the national government gears up to vaccinate this sector.

“Sa ngayon ay hinihintay po natin ang eksaktong petsa kung kailan ito sisimulan. Kaagad po natin itong ipagbibigay-alam oras na matanggap natin ang abiso mula sa Department of Health,” Mayor Oscar “Oca” Malapitan said.

Mayor Oca advised the public to continue to follow his official facebook page for the latest schedule and other important advisory related to the city’s mass vaccination program.

Earlier, by Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on Emerging Infectious Diseases passed Resolution No. 117 narrowing down the definition of economic frontliners or those who are considered part of A4 priority group.

These includes private sector employees required to work outside their places of residence, employees of government agencies, government corporations, and local government units, informal sector workers who are self-employed who may be required to work outside their residences, and those in private households.

Under the IATF resolution, local governments are also allowed to prioritize vaccinating economic frontliners who are aged 40 to 59 years old.
