Prioritize health frontliners in coronavirus vaccine, Biazon says

Muntinlupa City Rep. Ruffy Biazon has proposed that health workers should be given priority to getting the coronavirus vaccine once it is available.

Biazon said vaccinating the medical frontliners would boost their protection from the new coronavirus disease.

“If there’s anyone I’d like to be prioritized when a safe vaccine is available, it would be the medical frontliners. We should ensure that they’re protected when they go out to take care of those stricken by the virus. Live and fight another day, as the saying goes,” he tweeted.

Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. agreed with the proposal of Biazon to give vaccines to health frontliners.

“1,000% true,” Locsin tweeted.

President Duterte announced plans to give free coronavirus vaccines initially to the poor and the sick. He said low income families who receive cash grants from the government will be the first to receive the vaccine.
