ALL residents of Cebu City who are eligible for vaccination against coronavirus disease (Covid-19) should get vaccinated by Dec. 31, 2021 because by then, only those who are fully vaccinated will be allowed inside establishments.
Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama made the statement Wednesday, Dec. 1, in relation to the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases’ Resolutions 148-B and 149 prohibiting unvaccinated persons from doing on-site work.
The IATF had earlier said that by Dec. 1, unvaccinated individuals would be barred from entering their workplaces unless they could present a negative RT-PCR test result every two weeks.
"I also intend to implement it in the City Hall because why not? This is for the sake of everyone; this is to keep everybody safe. However, we will still be abiding by the process and hopefully, by Dec. 31, all City Hall employees will be vaccinated. Remember, bonus can only be released to the vaccinated people," Rama said.
Rama also said he wants all eligible residents of Cebu City to get vaccinated by Dec. 31 because by then, all establishments will be opened and only those who are fully vaccinated will be welcome to go inside.
Those who are not yet vaccinated by that time will be required to present a negative RT-PCR test result before entering any kind of establishment
