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.

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.

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.
