NegOcc city allots P20 million for Covid-19 vaccines


San Carlos City in Negros Occidental has set aside P20 million for the procurement of coronavirus disease (Covid-19) vaccines.

Mayor Renato Gustilo, however, said they have yet to choose which vaccine brand to buy.

“Take into account the venues for mass vaccination, number of qualified vaccinators, and number of shots that a vaccinator can give per day,” added Gustilo. (

The city government’s Emergency Operations Center earlier presented the National Deployment and Covid-19 Vaccination Plan to the city officials.

The Plan includes the vaccine road map strategic framework as well as the chapter or stages of vaccination plan from scientific evaluation and selection down to assessment, evaluation and monitoring, including the importance of Covid-19 Vaccination Operations Center.

Another meeting was slated this week to further discuss the National Deployment and Vaccination Plan and finalize the creation of the city’s Covid-19 Vaccination Operations Center.
