The government is priming itself for the next phase of vaccination – that for booster shots – as the Department of Health (DOH) is now considering funding for that process.

Meanwhile, the disaster response program of the government is now shifting to granular lockdowns to adapt to changing times, according to Interior and Local Government Secretary Eduardo Ano.

President Duterte has also apologized to the Filipino people for his change of heart in being strict against gambling as he admitted that the government needed additional income during these times.

These are among the top stories this Friday afternoon, August 27, 2021.
