Even as the City Health Office has already started vaccinating persons with comorbidities against COVID-19, senior citizens (who have already registered) are also being called to receive their vaccine shots.
Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo has instructed health officials to accelerate the vaccination of eligible persons in accordance with the order of priority of the Department of Health as he will follow through on his requests for additional COVID-19 vaccines to be shipped direct to Dumaguete City from the national government.
To be eligible for COVID-19 vaccination, persons with comorbidities must register and once called for schedule, must bring a medical certificate of attending physician or prescription to medicine, hospital records, surgical records or any other proof of their comorbidity.
In order to avoid overcrowding and to maintain order, only those who registered and with confirmed schedules will be allowed to enter the vaccination sites.
