LUCENA CITY – Quezon Governor Danilo Suarez expressed his preference for a P1-billion fund to purchase coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccines.
“Landbank will be the source of our funds because we have un-availed loan funds sa kanila na hindi pa namin nagagamit, I will prefer to go up to P1-billion”, Suarez said.
“The health of the province has no tag price and it is non-negotiable,” he emphasized.
It was also reported that the provincial government was preparing a priority list, and a system of registration for all those who may want to be administered with the vaccine.
Suarez underscored that the implementation of the vaccination program will not only be the task of the national government but also of the provincial government, and even the private sector.
