Cagayan de Oro City, 30 March 2021—Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Oscar S. Moreno sits down with former Health Secretary and Dean of the Ateneo University School of Medicine and Public Health Dr. Manuel Dayrit, and three (3) other City Mayors to discuss their plans for large-scale vaccinations.

The Fireside Chat hosted by Livable Cities Philippines and the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), titled “Vaccine Ready Cities: The Road to 500K Daily Vaccinations,” brings together healthcare facility heads Dr. Gap Legaspi of the Philippine General Hospital (PGH), and Dr. Saturnino P. Javier of the Makati Medical Center in the first segment on “Inoculations at Primary Care Facilities” moderated by BCG Managing Director and Senior Partner Anthony Oundjian.

The second half moderated by Dr. Dayrit will focus on citywide vaccination rollouts with City Mayors Moreno, Beng Climaco of Zamboanga, Emmanuel Maliksi of Imus, and Rex Gatchalian of Valenzuela.

The Mayors will discuss the availability of supply, communication challenges and solutions, data management innovations, and the logistics nitty gritty of the heretofore historically unprecedented undertaking.

Livable Cities PH Chairman Guillermo "Bill" Luz is set to open and close the proceedings, just one in a series of Livable Cities Labs, a platform and venue for cities and institutions to share good practices and solutions and forge new partnerships presented by Livable Cities PH with the League of Cities of the Philippines (LCP), in partnership with Globe Telecom and Boston Consulting Group (BCG).
