How are the LGUs prioritized in the vaccine deployment program of the government?

Based on DM 2021-0099, otherwise known as, Interim Omnibus Guidelines for the Implementation of the National Vaccine Deployment Plan for COVID-19, sub-prioritization shall be determined by DOH upon recommendation of NITAG conducted within a priority population group through selection of geographic areas if there is insufficient incoming supply of vaccines. Sub-prioritization shall be based on:

a. COVID-19 burden of disease (current active cases, attack rate per 100,000 population in the past 4 weeks, and population density); and

b. Vaccination site and/or LGU readiness, in particular, its supply chain capability, to mount a vaccination campaign
