Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson urged local government units (LGUs) in the province to be ready to handle the bulk of Covid-19 vaccines to be allotted to them.

More Covid-19 vaccines are expected to arrive in the next several months, according to Lacson.

The provincial government has established measures to speed up the vaccination rollout in all 31 LGUs of the province by conducting a simultaneous inoculation in the towns and cities last week. (

“The reason why the provincial government decided to really push our LGUs is to prepare them for the arrival of more vaccines that will be spread all over the country. We should be ready,” the governor said.

With the arrival of more vaccines, Lacson said they will increase the number of the vaccines to be given to LGUs.

He added that local governments that are fast in their vaccination activities will be given more vaccine doses.
