MANILA, Philippines — Makatatanggap ng dagdag na insentibo ang mga benepisyaryo ng Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) na nakakumpleto na ng bakuna kontra COVID-19.
Ayon kay Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Secretary Rolando Bautista, nakatakdang maglabas ng executive order si Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte kaugnay ng programa.
“The president will issue an executive order on how to grant incentives to the members of 4Ps once they submit themselves for vaccination without violating the regulations governing the program,” ang pahayag ni Bautista nang bumisita ito sa isang vaccination center sa Zamboanga City noong Martes.
Hindi binanggit ng opisyal kung anong insentibo ang ibibigay sa 4Ps beneficiaries.
Ayon sa DSWD chief, mas marami na ngayong 4Ps beneficiaries ang interesado nang magpabakuna matapos magsagawa ng information drive ang pamahalaan kaugnay ng hakbang.
“We explained to them that they really need to be vaccinated against coronavirus disease during the conduct of the family development sessions,” ani Bautista.
