Essential workers in Las Piñas can finally receive COVID-19 vaccines as the city government starts the inoculation of those in the A4 category, Rep. Camille Villar said.

In a statement, Villar said the local government is simultaneously vaccinating eligible individuals from the A1-A4 priority sectors in various vaccination sites.

“We believe that with the inoculation of essential workers, we are on the road to slowly rebuild our economy from the impacts of COVID-19,” she said.

“Broadening access to vaccines will help us meet our goals of achieving herd immunity,” Villar added.

The neophyte lawmaker recently unveiled a vaccine incentive program called “May Bahay sa Bakuna” to entice residents to have themselves vaccinated against COVID-19. Vaccinated individuals get a chance to win grocery items, motorcycles and a brand new house and lot.

“We want to reinforce the importance of getting vaccinated for people, their families, and the community. It will not only protect people but help our economy slowly recover,” she earlier said.
