DOLE to give away bicycles, cellphones to fully vaccinated workers

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) will soon give free bicycles and cellphones for those who have completely received two doses of their COVID-19 vaccines.

Labor Secretary Silvester Bello III, said the Free Bisikleta 9FreeBis) project which was launched last year will be reintroduced as BakSikleta, to help encourage the workers under the A4 category to get themselves vaccinated.

“Those workers under the A4 category, who have fully received the vaccines will be given a free bicycle, which the beneficiary can use to start his/her business. It also comes with a cellphone with PHP5,000 worth of load. That is your reward if you show us that you already received two doses of the vaccine starting July 1,” he added. 

An initial of 2,000 bicycles will be given to beneficiaries, 1,000 of which will be distributed all over the National Capital Region (NCR) and 1,000 others will be distributed to its regional offices nationwide.

Those who would like to apply for the program may contact the DOLE hotline 1349 or BWSC's social media.

The government has already started vaccinating those under the A4 priority list this month. It includes private sector employees, government personnel, workers in the informal sector, self-employed who work outside of their homes, and private household workers.

The bicycle units come with a helmet, raincoat, water bottle, thermal bag, and Android mobile phone with a PHP5,000 load in electronic payment application.
