The SK Federation invited LED dancers who will signal the start of the countdown before switching off the lights.
The mayor said that instead of preparing various activities, she only posted on her official Face Book page her greeting and also to inform the residents that the city government will devote its time to the vaccination roll out.
Aguilar said that city government already started the vaccination roll out to social workers in orphanages, personnel from the Bureau of Jail and Management Penology (BJMP), dialysis centers, and nurses assigned at the Department of Education (DepEd).
She said the city government prioritizes the health of all Las Pineros and wants all to be vaccinated against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
