Senator Bong Go on Thursday lauded the private sector and local government units for their initiatives in procuring Covid-19 vaccines for their employees and residents.

The chair of the Senate health panel virtually attended the signing of a Memorandum of Agreement between the Philippine government, participating local government units, private sector donors, and drug firm AstraZeneca for the procurement of seventeen million doses of Covid-19 vaccines.

The private sector had pledged to donate 2.6 million doses from AstraZeneca through the “A Dose of Hope” program last November. A similar deal has been signed to secure an additional 14.4 million doses for the country. The first batch of doses is expected to arrive by July.

“Napakahalaga ng papel ng bakuna sa ating recovery mula sa kasalukuyang pandemya. Ito po ang magiging susi upang makabalik ang pamumuhay natin sa normal,” Go said.

“Kaya naman, napakalaking bagay ng ceremonial signing na magaganap ngayong araw dahil opisyal na nitong uumpisahan ang ating pagbangon mula sa Covid-19,” the senator said in his video message.

He also praised the combined efforts of the national government, LGUs, and private sector for delivering a timely and effective national vaccination program for Filipinos. He stressed the importance of a whole-of-nation approach in addressing the challenges of the pandemic and uplifting the lives of the people.

“This is a true showcase of how the Philippine government and private groups can unite in protecting its people against the pandemic,” Go said.
