MANILA, Philippines — The Inter-Agency Task Force Against COVID-19 (IATF) has created a team that will lead the immunization program of the government once a COVID-19 vaccine becomes available in the country.

Through Resolution No. 82, the COVID-19 Immunization Program Management Organization Structure was formed and headed by the Department of Health (DOH).

“The COVID-19 Immunization Program Management Organizational Structure will be under the National Task Force on COVID-19. They were directed to convene right away,” Roque said.
