Mike Rama volunteers to be first to receive vaccines in Cebu City


Mike Rama is volunteering as tribute to build Cebuanos’ confidence in COVID-19 vaccines.

The vice mayor announced the creation of the local committee for the formulation of a vaccine plan, as well as the distribution system once the doses arrive. With it came his statement that he is ready to be the first to receive the shots.

“As news of the COVID – 19 vaccines begin to reach the public, so does uncertainty and fear over the use of vaccine,” the politiko said. “To help alleviate fears, I am volunteering to submit myself for vaccination to prove that taking the vaccine is safe and that we should take the vaccine when it is readily available.”

The city has allotted P400 million for the purchase of approved vaccines, but he admitted that the concern now is wide acceptance.
