“Our health center personnel face a heavy task and their responsibilities would only get heavier, which is why they should not be underpaid,” Sotto said in a Facebook post.

Sotto also said that health aides who would be retiring would be getting a separation pay for the first time, equivalent to P10,000 for every year of service.

Pasig is the first local government unit in the country to have an approved COVID-19 vaccination plan and is being eyed to be one of the first cities to get the shots due to its preparations.

The city aims to vaccinate over 33,000 residents weekly in 16 vaccination centers, Sotto said.

Pasig has recorded over 10,000 COVID-19 cases since March, with over 9,000 recoveries and over 400 deaths.
