Senator Grace Poe on Monday reminded the country’s Covid-19 vaccine planners to include public utility vehicle drivers and other members of the transport sector in the rollout of the jabs.

“The euphoria over the first shipment of the Covid-19 vaccines should be matched with a clear sight on a systematic rollout of the inoculation process,” the chair of the Senate public services committee said.

“In making available the vaccine to health workers and other priority sectors, let us not forget our PUV drivers and others workers in the transportation sector, who are key to our economic comeback,” Poe said.

“Over the past months under lockdown, transportation workers have been the lifeline of our communities. They have ferried workers to offices, delivered food to homes and helped keep the continuous flow of goods of businesses,” she noted.

“Drivers along with the other groups in the priority list—senior citizens, teachers, OFWs, essential staff, frontline workers, indigent population—need the protection against the virus most because of their situation as we embark on the road to the new normal,” Poe said.
