According to PNP Chief Gen. Guillermo Eleazar, the use of police camps and other facilities for the vaccination of PNP personnel’s minor dependents could help decongest local governments’ vaccination sites.
As the Philippines begins its preparations for the vaccination of Filipino adolescents aged 12 to 17, the Philippine National Police (PNP) offered its police camps and other facilities as vaccination sites for the minor dependents of its uniformed and as civilian personnel.
PNP chief General Guillermo Eleazar stated he has directed Administrative Support for COVID-19 Task Force head Lt. Gen. Joselito Vera Cruz to start listing the PNP personnel’s minor children and other dependents.
"This will be in preparation for the expansion of the government's vaccination program for minors in order to have as many Filipinos protected from the COVID-19," the PNP chief stated in a video message released last Sunday, September 19.
Eleazar said using police camps and other facilities for the children and other dependents of the PNP workforce would help in decongesting local government units’ vaccination sites once the vaccination program for the 12 to 17-year-old age group starts.
According to the PNP-Administrative Support for COVID-19 Task Force (ASCOTF) data, over 131,000 PNP personnel have been fully vaccinated, while more than 80,000 others have already received their first dose jab against COVID-19.
The PNP chief said they are aiming to have the entire 222,711 PNP personnel vaccinated before the end of this year. Only 1,554 of them have yet to receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Amid the continuous arrival of vaccines against the coronavirus, the national government, through the National Task Force Against COVID-19 spearheaded by national vaccine czar Secretary Carlito Galvez, is currently preparing for the vaccination of Filipino minors aged 12 to 17 years old.
