Mayor Ronnie Dadivas of Capiz province urged village officials to convince senior citizens to get a Covid-19 vaccine.

Dadivas said many senior citizens or members of the A2 priority group are reluctant to be vaccinated out of fear or uncertainty.

“With the help of our barangay officials, we will intensify the vaccination campaign on senior citizens and make them understand that it is for their protection because Covid-19 is a deadly disease,” the mayor added. (

The city government can’t start vaccinating economic frontliners if they do not finish the inoculation of senior citizens.

“The city will give incentives to barangays with very good performance in the vaccination drive and those with the highest percentage of vaccination,” said Dadivas.
