“Sa mga taga-QC, download po natin ang EZ consult app para maka rehistro na po tayo at antayin natin ang abiso sa email natin,” Alcasid said as he urged others to also get vaccinated.

The A4 category which covers transport workers, market vendors and other essential workers is expected to go up the vaccination priority list in May. JB
