Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto on Tuesday described the just-passed Senate Bill 2057 as “a cocktail of cures for the national vaccine lack caused by executive lethargy.”

“It is an adrenaline shot that will boost procurement. It is the inoculation against suits that suppliers are demanding,” he said, explaining his yes vote.

The Senate on Tuesday unanimously passed on third and final reading the bill expediting the purchase and administration of Covid-19 vaccines to Filipinos.

Voting 22-0, the Senate in its hybrid plenary session approved Senate Bill 2057 or the Covid-19 Vaccination Program Act of 2021.

Recto said the bill “orders a vaccination mark, so to speak, for those who will get jabbed—so that properly identified, they can move around freely.”

“This bill expands the roster of vaccine procurers to include LGUs, humanitarian organizations, and private and civic groups,” he said.

“The ways and means of achieving these are spelled out in the bill in great detail. By tapping the potential of other actors outside the national government, the new rules this bill provides are hopefully a game changer,” Recto said.
