NEGROS Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson has called for a meeting for the activation of the Covid-19 Vaccination Task Force, which will lead the province to systematically and efficiently utilize the vaccination strategy in combating the virus.

The meeting, held at the Provincial Capitol in Bacolod City Thursday, March 4, was attended by Board Members Ryan Gamboa and Araceli Somosa, Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz II, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Ernell Tumimbang, chiefs of hospitals, Philippine National Police, concerned Capitol departments and offices, and national government agencies.
