THE Provincial Government of Negros Occidental has made some changes on its planned mass vaccination simulation exercises, which will take place Friday next week, March 12.
Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson said the activity was supposed to be conducted in the town of Candoni, however, they have decided to change it to the town of Murcia instead.
Lacson said the reason why they changed it was because Murcia was much nearer and much more centered, making it easily accessible to various representatives of local government units (LGU) in the province to attend and observe the exercise.
The town of Candoni was previously chosen because it is the furthest LGU of the province. The town was also initially chosen as it was also identified as the most difficult area to enter.
It was also previously concluded that if the dry run is successful in the town, it would also mean that other areas of the province that are also hard to enter can still be properly supplied with the vaccines.
