Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, April 8) — Filipino senior citizens and those with comorbidities are now getting their COVID-19 shots alongside health workers amid the surge in cases.

Since the implementation of the enhanced community quarantine, local government units in Metro Manila scheduled the simultaneous vaccination of the A1, A2, and A3 sectors. A1 refers to medical frontliners, A2 to senior citizens, while A3 covers persons with comorbidities.

Aside from the vaccine by British-Swedish drugmaker AstraZeneca, those aged 60 and above also now have the option to get doses from China's Sinovac Biotech, after the Food and Drug Administration approved on Tuesday its use for the group. The FDA and the Department of Health noted that the health status of senior citizens must be evaluated first before getting inoculated with the Sinovac's CoronaVac.

Inoculation for people with comorbidities is also ongoing. The DOH said those under 65 years old with chronic respiratory disease, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, malignancy, diabetes mellitus, obesity, and chronic kidney disease are also eligible to get CoronaVac.

In a briefing on March 30, vaccine czar Carlito Galvez Jr. said local government units have simplified their pre-registration process for those with comorbidities to help fast-track the rollout for them.

He noted that the simultaneous vaccination for the first three priority groups will be done with the help of the LGUs and the private sector.

The goverment is allocating 3.4 million doses for the country's 1.7 million health workers. It will also distribute doses for 9.4 million senior citizens and 14 million people with comorbidities. Vaccines will then be provided for 11 million economic frontliners and 17.7 million indigents.

A massive rollout for the other priority groups can be expected between May and June as more vaccines will be shipped to the country, Galvez added.
