EO Implementing “No Vaccine, No Entry” in Lapu-Lapu City Described by DILG as Discriminatory
DILG Secretary Eduardo Año has described the proposed “No Vaccine, No Entry” in Lapu-Lapu City as a discriminatory act.
On Wednesday (July 28, 2021), Interior Secretary Eduardo Año has expressed his opposition towards the executive order prohibiting the entry of unvaccinated individuals to enter Lapu-Lapu City.
“Hindi pa napapanahon ‘yung mga ganiyang policy kasi discriminatory pa rin siya at very prescriptive sa mga hindi pa bakunado,” Año said.
Only vaccinated people will be allowed to enter public and private markets including department stores, supermarkets, grocery stores and convenience stores in Lapu-Lapu City starting August 25.
The DILG Secretary opposed the order knowing that the Philippines has no enough supply of vaccines. Año’s office is already coordinating with Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Junard “Ahong” Chan to discuss the order.
The Interior Secretary encouraged everyone not to discriminate the unvaccinated and encourage them to get vaccinated.
Chan also said city government gives residents nearly a month to get vaccinated. The Executive Order No. 2021-040 received criticisms online two days after it was released.
