Senators supposedly agreed that they be placed last in the national government’s COVID-19 vaccination line, with medical frontliners (Category A1), senior citizens (Category A2), and person with comorbidities (Category A3) as their priorities.

Aside from the Senate President, Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon also received his first dose of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine in San Juan City last April 10.

The Department of Health (DOH) said that Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine doses were taken 28 days apart, while AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine doses may be taken 4-12 weeks apart.
