The Quezon City government will give a P2,000 aid for vendors who will secure a schedule in the city’s vaccination program against COVID-19.
According to Saleema Refran’s “24 Oras” report, unvaccinated vendors are required to provide negative swab test results at their own expense to continue selling at the local markets.
But vendors are given a choice to receive an incentive if they are willing to get inoculated versus COVID-19, which will protect them against severe infection.
Several vaccination sites in Metro Manila also have long lines as people are eager to get inoculated amid the sudden spike of COVID-19 cases.
As of January 13, 2022, the Philippines recorded 53.9 million fully vaccinated people while 4.1 million people already received their booster dose.
To date, the country has recorded a record-high daily COVID-19 cases since the pandemic started, with 34,021 new COVID-19 cases.
The Philippines now has 3,092,409 total COVID-19 infections with 2,802,286 recoveries and 52,736 deaths.–Consuelo Marquez/LDF, GMA News
