Baguio to Allocate P100 Million For Anti-COVID Vaccine
8 January 2021 – The city government plans to allocate some P100 million from its resources to procure vaccine against the Corona Virus Disease (COVID) 2019 that is expected to be available in the country by the third or fourth quarter of this year to achieve the so-called herd immunity.
As this developed, Mayor Benjamin B. Magalong said he already received commitments from two international pharmaceutical companies for a total of 200,000 doses.
A total of 33,000 doses were also pledged by local companies including the local Chamber of Commerce and Industry and several PEZA locators, among others.
The mayor stated he will sign the required confidentiality disclosure agreement with the pharmaceutical companies that will supply the vaccines in the city to facilitate the signing of the tripartite agreement among the city government, the companies and the national government through the national vaccine committee.
The city chief executive tasked the members of the city’s Local Finance Committee to source out the required funds to procure the vaccine.
Magalong claimed there will be more than enough vaccine for the city residents because the national vaccine committee will also provide the supply of vaccines as Baguio City has been included by the inter-agency task force for the management of emerging infectious diseases as one of the priority areas where the mass vaccination will be conducted being a highly urbanized city and populated area.
However, the mayor explained that part of the conditions of the agreement is for the local government to place a 20 percent reservation fee to the supplier to ensure the availability of the vaccine.
According to him, part of the city’s readiness for the vaccine is the procurement of a number of freezers to preserve the vaccine as the cold storage facilities had already been shipped from China recently.
He revealed the freezers that can keep the temperature from negative 2 to negative 8, negative 20 to negative 40 and negative 40 to negative 80 degrees Celsius, are expected to arrive in the city by the first week of February.
He emphasized that the priority sectors to be vaccinated will be those frontliners that are directly dealing with COVID patients, elderly with co-morbidities, health workers, uniformed personnel, among others. - Dexter A. See
