PH Local Government Units to allot funds for COVID-19 Vaccine


(UPDATED AS OF JANUARY 9, 2021) Last December, the Congress has allocated ₱72.5 billion from the 2021 budget for COVID-19 vaccine. But according to Philippine Senator Pia Cayetano, she has received an information that the said allocation will only vaccinate 25% of the total population - far from the 60-70% requirement by the World Health Organization to acquire herd immunity.

With this, some Local Government Units have already allocated their own budget to acquire the said vaccine. Some LGUs will prioritize to give free vaccines to its residents, while others will prioritize the health sector first; or other sectors as recommended by the World Health Organization.
