THE Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases has approved the request of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) for 5,000 doses of Covid-19 vaccines to be used during the symbolic inoculation ceremony of minimum wage workers and overseas Filipino workers under Priority Group A4 on Labor Day, May 1, 2021.

The DOLE has been directed to create a masterlist to ensure the equitable representation of the labor sector during the said ceremony.

The IATF likewise considered frontliners of the Congress of the Philippines to be placed under Priority Group A4 of the National Covid-19 Vaccine Deployment Plan in recognition of their critical and indispensable role in our fight against the coronavirus pandemic. (PR)
