Committee of the Whole to Tackle Vaccination Game Plan: Sen. Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan calls for the constitution of a Committee of the Whole to tackle the national COVID-19 vaccination program during the hybrid plenary session, Monday, December 14, 2020. Pangilinan said he filed Senate Resolution No. 594 asking a Committee of the Whole hearing on the subject considering that it covers a complex number of issues such as funding, country-to-country negotiations, logistical support, private sector mobilization, including digital infrastructure and sophisticated transport systems, and public health concerns, among others. “The country needs clear and concrete action steps and deliverables in a vaccination program that our citizens can trust and believe in. It is incumbent upon government to provide this,” Pangilinan said. (Screen grab/ Senate PRIB)
