Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo said that additional COVID-19 vaccines from the national government will be shipped direct to the city this week for the immunization of more eligible residents.
As of June 28, 2021, about 7, 846 residents, who belong to priority groups A1 (medical frontliners), A2 (Senior Citizens) and A3 (Persons with Comorbidities), have been vaccinated by the City Health Office.
Mayor Remollo has commended the volunteer nurses and doctors including the Philippine National Red Cross, who helped augment the vaccination teams, even as the CHO is preparing to open additional vaccination sites to serve more eligible residents.
The City Health Office is currently vaccinating A2 senior citizens and A3 persons with comorbidities, who have registered both online and through their barangays in two vaccination posts.
Senior citizens and persons with comorbidities, who have registered, are reminded to wait for the call or notification from the City Health Office that will confirm their schedule and place of vaccination.
To ensure the orderly conduct of vaccination and avoid overcrowding, walk-ins are discouraged.
