Malacañang on Thursday welcomed the initiative of local government units (LGUs) to purchase coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccines for their constituents.

“Wala pong LGU na makakabili ng bakuna on their own, kinakailangan pa rin ng national government. kaya lang, pagdating sa pondo bakit tayo tatanggi doon sa pondo na nilaan na para sa bakuna, samantalang ang plano natin ay mangutang pa para pambili ng bakuna,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a virtual presser.

“Siyempre po, money talks. Kung nandiyan po ang pera nila at nilaan nila yan para sa bakuna, bakit naman hihindi ang national government,” he added.

Roque, however, reminded LGUs to follow the national government’s vaccination scheme.

“Yung mandato kung paano i-ro-roll out, yan ay desisyon pa rin ng national government at ng IATF. So, lahat ng LGUs kinakailangang sumunod. Kinakailangang geographical priority, yung mga matataas na kaso: Metro Manila, Cebu, Davao, including Calabarzon. Pagdating doon sa sectoral, unahin natin ang mga medical frontliners, ang mga indigent senior citizens at yung iba pang crucial workers,” he explained.
