MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Health (DOH) has agreed to prioritize the vaccination of teachers in areas selected for the pilot resumption of face-to-face classes in the country.


Education Undersecretary Nepomuceno Malaluan said that both teaching and non-teaching personnel will be prioritized even if they are in areas not in the “geographical prioritization” of the national government.


“We have an understanding with the Department of Health and the national vaccination operations center that pilot schools will be given priority and allocation,” Malaluan said on Tuesday in an interview on One News’ “The Chiefs.”
