PNP chief Eleazar was set to receive his first dose of COVID-19 vaccine in PNP’s COVID-19 vaccination rollout.
Police General Guillermo Lorenzo T. Eleazar was set to receive his first dose of COVID-19 vaccine in PNP’s COVID-19 vaccination rollout under the A4 category list.
On Thursday, Eleazar said that the first dose of any COVID-19 vaccine that would be allocated for the Philippine National Police (PNP) under the A4 category will be administered to him.
The PNP was yet to receive its allocation of the COVID-19 vaccine doses but Eleazar said that they’re ready for the second wave of the rollout once the COVID-19 vaccine allocation for the PNP personnel arrived.
Also, Eleazar repeatedly warned policemen before not to skip the national government’s COVID-19 vaccine priority list, saying that he himself would wait for the time when the vaccination for A4 category starts.
Eleazar added that he will be joined by the members of the Command Group in receiving the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine as part of the information campaign for the more than 220,000 PNP personnel that the vaccination was a responsibility of every citizen and that all the COVID-19 vaccine brands were safe.
The said move, according to Eleazar, was to convince the remaining PNP personnel who remained undecided on whether or not they would be inoculated against the coronavirus disease.
“We are still waiting for the vaccine allocation but I have already instructed all PNP personnel to take advantage of the COVID vaccines that would be offered to them by their respective LGUs (Local Government Units). This arrangement was already approved by our DILG Secretary Eduardo M Año,” Eleazar said.
