ワクチン接種 企業の協力求む

リチャード・ゴードン上院議員は、コロナワクチン接種を進めるため、民間企業が政府と協力してインセンティブを提供することを求めました。

あるドーナツショップは、フィリピン赤十字社(PRC)から予防接種を受ける人に無料でドーナツを提供することに同意しました。これについてゴードン氏は「私たちは自分のことよりも、国や社会のことを優先するよう人々に働きかけなければなりません」と述べています。

またゴードン氏は、経済活動を維持するために働かなければならないフィリピン人への接種を開始するよう国に求めました。フィリピンでは、マニラ首都圏で集団免疫を獲得するために、首都圏および近隣の州で毎日12万人にワクチンを接種することを目標としています。いち早く経済を回復させ、利益が自社に還元されることを願って協力する企業も多いようです。国民、企業、政府が一丸となって動き始めています。今後の感染者数に注目です。

Free donuts, ensaymada? Lawmaker backs incentives to boost COVID-19 vaccinations

MANILA – Sen. Richard Gordon on Monday urged private firms to partner with the government in providing incentives to encourage more Filipinos to be inoculated against COVID-19.

A certain donut shop has agreed to provide free donuts for those who will avail COVID-19 jabs from the Philippine Red Cross (PRC), Gordon, who chairs the non-profit agency, told ANC’s Headstart.

“It’s part of their contribution. We must feel that everybody is carrying the load,” he said.
“For example, Starbucks, papayag sila na magbibigay ng kape o ensaymada kapag nagpa-vaccinate,” he said.

“We really have to incentivize people na country first, community first, before yourself,” he said.

The Philippines needs to increase its daily vaccination rate to 240,000 per day, but “right now, we are only doing 60,000 per day,” the senator said.

“If we vaccinate at 240,000 per day, we will finish in one and a half year,” he said.

Gordon also urged the national government to start inoculating individuals under the A4 category, or Filipinos who need to physically go to work to keep the economy running during the pandemic.

“No time should be wasted. Get somebody who wants to be vaccinated right away,” he said.
As of last week, the Philippines has vaccinated only 6 percent of senior citizens in the country, according to data from the Department of Health (DOH).
The Philippines targets to jab 120,000 people daily in the capital region and nearby provinces to attain herd immunity in virus epicenter Metro Manila.
