The EOC-Task Force and the CoVac continue to administer the first and second doses of vaccine to Bacolodnons who are under frontline healthcare workers, senior citizens, and adults with comorbidities.

Leonardia earlier requested the national government to allocate more vaccines for Bacolod amid the continued surge in local cases.
