MALACANANG is looking at declaring a possible three-day non-working holidays in support of the planned massive vaccination drive.
The Office of the President is still studying the recommendation of National Task Force Against COVID-19 (NTF) chief implementer and vaccine czar Secretary Carlito Galvez, Jr. to declare the three national vaccination days as special non-working holidays.
Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said an announcement will be made once the proposal is approved by President Rodrigo Duterte.
Roque said the proposed national vaccination days will be on November 29 and December 1, while November 30, which is Bonifacio Day, is already a regular holiday.
“Whichever, let’s just wait for the final decision of the President about this, which will come in the form of an Executive Order,” Roque stressed.
Roque, likewise, urged the public to take advantage of the three days in the national vaccination drive to have themselves vaccinated in order to achieve population protection for the entire nation before Christmas.
