Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson is not keen on giving incentives to individuals vaccinated against Covid-19.

“We are not thinking that way,” said Lacson.

He pointed out that being vaccinated itself is a big incentive as it gives people protection against the viral illness. (https://bit.ly/3cnPFKn)

National Task Force Against Covid-19 spokesperson Restituto Padilla earlier said they were eyeing incentives such as discounts on goods and services for those who received their Covid-19 shots.

Following Padilla’s statement, several local government units offer cash incentives to ramp up their Covid-19 vaccination program.
