MANILA, Philippines — Local chief executives in Metro Manila have agreed to get inoculated with COVID-19 vaccines, Parañaque Mayor Edwin Olivarez announced yesterday.

“All of us 17 mayors have agreed to get vaccinated to boost the confidence of our constituents,” Olivarez, who chairs the Metro Manila Council, told Teleradyo. “If they can see mayors, governors vacinnated, their confidence will increase.”

Olivarez said he would be vaccinated this week.

Pateros Mayor Miguel Ponce III and Pasay Mayor Imelda Calixto-Rubiano, a COVID-19 survivor, received their first doses of AstraZeneca vaccine yesterday.

Rubiano, 60, was inoculated along with senior citizens and people with comorbidities at the Timoteo Paez Elementary School in Malibay.
