CNN Philippines' Pia Hontiveros interviews LCP President Bing Leonardia on the plans of LCP to ensure vaccine availability to city constituents.
In the interview, Mayor Leonardia highlighted the importance of working with the IATF-EID in ensuring vaccine availability.
He stressed that through the Committee which he created recently, LCP wants to ensure that its plans align with the national government efforts on providing vaccine to Filipinos to achieve what is called "herd immunity."
According to the international World Health Organization or WHO, herd immunity--also known as population immunity--is "a concept used for vaccination, in which a population can be protected from a certain virus if a threshold of vaccination is reached."
Furthermore, "herd immunity is achieved by protecting people from a virus, not by exposing them to it."
