THE Provincial Government of Negros Occidental will start the rollout of Covid-19 Pfizer vaccines from June 28 up to July 2.

In a memorandum to all city and municipal mayors in the province issued Tuesday, June 22, Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson enjoined them to abide by the guidelines.

Only A1 to A3 vaccinees will be targeted for Pfizer vaccination, Lacson said in the memorandum.

He also advised the mayors to submit soft copy of the completed VIMS-IR master list of the vaccinees for Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and a scanned copy of the transmittal letter indicating the number of target Pfizer vaccinees duly signed by the municipal or city health officer and city or municipal mayor.

There will only be two sites for the Pfizer vaccination rollout, which are the Negros Residences and the Teresita Jalandoni Provincial Hospital in Silay City where the vaccines are being stored.

The city or municipality shall be responsible for the transport of their constituents to the vaccination site during their assigned schedule. Only those master listed will be vaccinated and there shall be no walk-in vaccinees, Lacson said.

During the vaccination schedule, the vaccinees must bring the vaccination card provided by the local government unit (LGU) with personal information already filled out and signed consent form, fully accomplished Pfizer screening form, or health declaration form. This implies the LGU health personnel has already screened the vaccinees, the governor added.

The province received last week 1,950 vials of Pfizer vaccines, which is equivalent to 11,700 doses, as each vial has six doses and all can therefore vaccinate 5,850 individuals.
