Statement of Senator Joel Villanueva on the updated list of essential workers for vaccination

Magandang balita po itong updated priority list of essential workers. Those who keep the public informed are as essential as those who teach, transport, feed, and protect us. By vaccinating them, we end up being protected as well. But in the case of our essential workers, there is double protection; aside from lives, livelihoods are likewise made safe.

But for more people to be vaccinated, more vaccines must arrive. The supply must meet the demand. The commendable move to include more people in the priority list will be cancelled by the lack of vaccines. Without the latter, rising demand will only lead to huge backlogs.

Ang listahan sa bakuna ay parang pong listahan sa ayuda. Ang mahalaga ay maibigay po ito sa mga pangalang nakasulat. Ika nga, "the proof of the listing is in the injecting. "

Let us hope that the reported production delays from vaccine manufacturers will not alter the delivery dates of the vaccines we have purchased.
