During his pre-recorded “Talk to the People” public briefing on late Tuesday night, the President said that he’s authorizing all local executives — mayors and governors — to “spend money” to feed those getting vaccinated at the fast-food chains.

According to the President, this was another way to help convince Filipinos to get their COVID-19 vaccines.

’Yung namang pupunta sa Jollibee [para magpabakuna] saka sa McDonald’s tapos parang gutumin, walang pera, tapos maamoy niya ‘yang karne diyan, I am authorizing all governors and mayors, gumastos na lang kayo ng pera, papalitan ko lang ‘yan balang araw, pakainin na lang sila,” President Duterte said.

Manila Bulletin reported that the national vaccination drive will take place from November 29 to December 1, 2021.

The aim of the government was to inoculate 15 million people from outside Metro Manila during the three-day vaccination drive.

I urge all NGAs (national government agencies), as well as provincial and LGUs (local government units) to use all available resources, especially human resources to help in the vaccination efforts during this three-day vaccination,” President Duterte said.

The President appealed to mayors and governors to bring their constituents to vaccination sites in malls and hospitals.

According to President Duterte, local executives — mayors and governors — were used to hauling huge numbers of people to events, anyway.

Kung maaari pakainin ninyo, tutal one-time lang naman ‘yan, para sa bayan. Gawain mo para sa bayan,” the President stressed.

The President thanked the private sector — including private hospitals and fast-food chains – for “providing all the help” in the preparations for the 3-day vaccination drive.
