ROXAS CITY, Capiz – Medical frontliners and workers of the Roxas Memorial Provincial Hospital (RMPH) are first to receive the 650 vials of Sinovac vaccine that were delivered to the province of Capiz on Monday.

The screening will be done immediately to ensure that the medical frontliners of RMPH are ready for the vaccination.
