MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Tourism (DOT) has asked the Department of Health to allot 62,000 doses of COVID vaccines for tourism workers in Palawan in a bid to revive the tourism industry in the province.

The DOT said 30,000 doses would be allotted for workers in Puerto Princesa while the remaining 32,000 would be administered to those in El Nido, Coron and San Vicente.

An initial 4,000 doses of China-made Sinovac were delivered to the province on Tuesday.

Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said the vaccination drive would “provide protection, peace of mind and the confidence to travel as we boost recovery and restore livelihoods by promoting domestic tourism.”

The DOT had earlier led a vaccination program for tourism workers in Boracay.
