Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama recently announced that City Hall employees will receive a P20,000 bonus on top of their 13th month pay this year, but only if all of them get vaccinated.
The move, which is backed by Emergency Operations Center chief and city counselor Joel Garganera, is to set an example to the public as local government workers.
This was also seen as motivation to spur vaccination in the city that currently stands at 40% of the target population. This translates to 299,000 residents out of some 700,000.
Currently, Cebu City has over 43,000 Covid19 cases, with some 1,300 dead.
