In a statement on Tuesday, Presidential spokesman Harry Roque said that the planned inoculation of minimum wage earners and overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) had been given the green light by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF).

The Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on Tuesday, April 27, 2021, approved the request of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) for 5,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine to be used during the symbolic inoculation ceremony of minimum wage workers and overseas Filipino workers under Priority Group A4 on May 1, 2021,” Roque said.

Roque also said that the labor department must craft a master list in order to ensure the “equitable representation of the labor sector” during the Labor Day ceremony.

Under IATF Resolution No. 112, the request of the Department of Labor and Employment was granted as “tribute” to the workers under priority group A4.

The A4 priority group was composed of essential frontliners — including vendors, transport workers, media workers, and government personnel.
