Dr. Gerardo “Gap” Legaspi, Director of the UP Philippine General Hospital (PGH), will share plans for vaccination among staff. Dr. Lito Acuin, Hospital Chief of the Asian Medical Center, will discuss what they will do in private hospitals. And Dr. Christina Padolina, City Health Officer of Navotas City, will talk about local governments’ plans for rolling out the vaccine for health workers at the primary and secondary levels.

They will also present other preparations for vaccine roll-out, including transportation and cold chain requirements for continuous vaccination of their staff.
