Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, November 28) — Vice President Leni Robredo has announced that her office will bring its 'Vaccine Express' to Catanduanes on Dec. 1, coinciding with the government's three-day national COVID-19 inoculation drive.

"Medyo mataas ‘yung kaso sa kanila. As of last week, nung nag-request sila sa ‘tin, Alert Level 4 sila. So, nagre-request sila para mapabilis ‘yung pag-dispense ng bakuna," she said during a radio interview on Sunday.

[Translation: The number of cases there is high. As of last week when they sent a request, they are under Alert Level 3. They requested to speed up the deployment of the vaccines.]

Last week, Robredo's Vaccine Express was in Malolos City in Bulacan.

The program started in June when the Office of the Vice President teamed up with the Manila City government for the inoculation of tricycle and pedicab drivers.

Under the partnership, the local government units will provide the COVID-19 vaccines, while Robredo's camp will focus on supplying the manpower to facilitate the vaccination.

Robredo earlier asked the national government for access to vaccine supply in hopes of deploying the Vaccine Express to more LGUs.
