But Lt. Gen. Guillermo Lorenzo Eleazar, officer-in-charge of the PNP, said only 350 of their healthcare workers would be vaccinated since the other 350 doses are boosters, or the second doses, to further boost immunity from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

“We will prioritize the remaining healthcare workers, including non-medical staff of our hospitals and isolation facilities, but it will only be for those assigned here in National Capital Region due to the limited initial allocation,” said Eleazar.

He said the first priority of the AstraZeneca vaccination are senior citizen-healthcare workers of the PNP with comorbidity while the second priority are the senior-citizen personnel healthcare workers. (Aaron B. Recuenco)
