Stressing the need for a swift and efficient whole-of-nation approach in addressing the Covid-19 pandemic, Senator Kiko Pangilinan on Wednesday said that the key solution to a more efficient vaccine roll-out is to involve the local government units (LGUs) and the private sector.

“Bakit ayaw nilang bigyan ng authority ang private sector at LGU na bumili ng vaccine at magkaroon ng mas efficient at mas masigasig na vaccine roll-out?” he said.

“I think that is a key solution. If we will just let the Department of Health (DOH) bureaucracy be the primary and sole vaccine roll-out bureaucracy, I doubt that we will be able to reach our targets,” Pangilinan said.

In a media interview, Pangilinan stressed that the bureaucracy needs a sense of urgency to be able to effectively deliver.

“Kung aasa lang si Galvez sa DOH bureaucracy, he might as well be a general without an army…I have no doubt Gen. Galvez has what it takes to make this work, but he needs the DOH [to have his] sense of urgency. The lack of sense of urgency is clearly displayed in the last 11 months,” Pangilinan said, referring to Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr., the chief implementer of the Covid task force and the vaccine czar.

“How do you get the bureaucracy to have a sense of urgency? You get the LGUs involved, you get the private sector involved. Let the LGUs and the private sector be the gas pedal to the roll-out,” he added.
