MANILA, Philippines – Pinasasama ng Commission on Human Rights (CHR) ang mga work-from-home employee sa A4 priority list sa pagbabakuna kontra coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

“As the government will start vaccinating qualified individuals under the A4 priority group, we ask the COVID-19 Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases to look into and consider the proposal of National Capital Region Mayors to include work-from-home employees in the A4 category, especially those that may be required to physically report to work,” ani CHR spokesperson Jacqueline Ann de Guia.

Aniya may mga pagkakataon ding pinapupunta sa opisina at ibang lugar ang mga naka-work-from-home.

Samantala, pinatitigil ng CHR ang mga sangkot sa iligal na pagbebenta ng vaccine slot.

“Individuals excluded from the priority list who jump the vaccination queue by selling and purchasing vaccine slots not only violate the principle of equitable vaccine distribution, they also compromise the country’s obligation under the COVAX agreement to provide free and succeeding vaccine allocations for agreed-upon groups,” giit ni De Guia.

Naalarma rin ang komisyon sa resulta ng isang survey kung saan lumabas na tatlo sa sampung Filipino lamang ang nais mabakunahan kontra COVID.

“The right to information to matters of public concern is crucially linked to the realization of an individual’s right to health in times of a pandemic,” punto ni De Guia.

“Enabling individuals to make sound decisions based on facts is the right way to decrease vaccine hesitancy among the public,” dagdag nito.

Ikinatuwa rin ng CHR ang record-breaking vaccination ng Maynila at Quezon City.

Nagtala ng 16,649 pagbabakuna sa Quezon City habang 22,066 sa Maynila.

“Protecting public health in times of a pandemic is an utmost priority that requires the cooperation of not just the government agencies but also of individuals,” aniya.

 “We remind the public to remain vigilant and continue to exercise health precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Through this, we can help continue sustaining the positive developments in our country’s vaccination efforts.” RNT/ELM
