Lacson: Vaccine Rollout Needed ASAP


It is high time the Department of Health and Food and Drug Administration show a sense of urgency in procuring COVID vaccines, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said Tuesday.

Lacson said the DOH and FDA should exercise their power to issue compassionate special permits especially for those who most need them.

“Why don’t they exercise their power to issue a compassionate special permit? Their officials keep claiming they are still conducting studies. Mamamatay tayo sa ka-study eh,” he said in an interview on TeleRadyo.

“We have to start the rollout of the vaccines soonest. Kahiya-hiya ang nangyayari sa atin,” he added. uses cookies to give you a better navigation experience on our site. As soon as you continue the tour, we assume you accept the cookies policy. Learn more about the cookie policy we use here.
