President Duterte, declared Nov. 29 to Dec. 1 as "Bayanihan, Bakunahan" National COVID-19 Vaccination Days as "special working days"


President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday declared Nov. 29 to Dec. 1 as "Bayanihan, Bakunahan" National COVID-19 Vaccination Days, sandwiching the non-working holiday Bonifacio Day.


MalacaƱang said November 29 and December 1 are considered "special working days" while only November 30 is a regular holiday for the commemoration of national hero Andres Bonifacio's birth anniversary.


The President's proclamation aims to boost interest in the government's three-day national COVID-19 vaccination drive which is expected to speed up inoculations.


Proclamation No. 1253 formally declared November 29 to December 1 as “Bayanihan, Bakunahan” National Covid-19 Vaccination Days.


Based on Proclamation No. 1253, workers of the government and the private sector who will be vaccinated during the three-day period will not be considered absent from work provided that they present proof of vaccination to their respective employers, subject to the rules that may be issued by the Department of Labor and Employment and the Civil Service Commission.


This means that fully vaccinated individuals and those who don't have vaccination schedules on the said dates are still required to report for work or risk non-payment of wage.


The Philippines aims to vaccinate at least 70 percent of the country's total population.
