Bacolod Mayor fully vacc against COVID-19


Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia is now fully vaccinated, after receiving his second dose of AstraZeneca vaccines at the Bacolod City Government Center Saturday, July 3.

In a press statement, Leonardia said: “I’m happy to report to our people that I have complied with our local and national vaccination plans. I reiterate that I preferred AstraZeneca because we anticipate that majority of Bacolodnons is expected to use this brand which we had contracted in a tripartite agreement and locally funded.”

Leonardia received his first dose of AstraZeneca last April 17, also at the vaccine rollout at the Government Center.

The mayor belongs to priority group A1 (Workers in Frontline Health Services), after the National IATF reclassified Local Chief Executives (LCEs) as under Priority Group A1.5 in the ongoing National Vaccination Program.

Administering both the first and second inoculation of Leonardia was OIC-City Health Officer Dr. Edwin Miraflor Jr.

Present at the inoculation activities on Saturday were other CHO doctors and Dr. Chris Sorongon, deputy medical of Emergency Operations Center (EOC).
