Mayor Evelio Leonardia inspected several vaccination areas in Bacolod City on Tuesday.

Members of the Emergency Operations Center joined Leonardia during the inspection.

The city mayor thanked National Task Force Against Covid-19 chief implementer Secretary Carlito Galvez for responding positively to his request to give Bacolod more vaccine allocation. (

“The 19,420 doses of AstraZeneca vaccine will go a long way in the city’s quest to accelerate the vaccination of our people,” said Leonardia.

“While we are in the meantime dependent on what the national government may give to us, we are looking forward to seeing that, by July, when our locally-purchased vaccines come, we’ll have a more stable and bigger and faster vaccination of our people,” he added.

Meanwhile, the local chief executive received 100 oximeters and 100 blood pressure monitor apparatus donated by Vallacar Transit Inc., the operator of Ceres buses, during a ceremony held at the Ayala Malls Capitol Central.

The donations were turned over by lawyer Julius Entila, vice president for Administration, and will be used in the ongoing mass vaccination program of the city.
