If health authorities approve, another vaccination post will be opened soon inside Foundation University campus which was offered by the school’s management to help the City Government in the vaccination rollout.
City Health Officer Dr. Maria Sarah B. Talla informed Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo that both her office and the Department of Health already conducted evaluation of the proposed vaccination post inside the campus of Foundation University.
This is in response to the directive of Mayor Remollo to open additional vaccination posts to accommodate more eligible residents even as authorities are trying to control the spread of COVID-19.
Presently, there are 2 functioning vaccination posts in Pulantubig Gymnasium and Robinson Mall.
Last Friday, the CHO has already started vaccinating residents belonging to A4 (frontline personnel in essential sectors, including uniformed personnel) while the immunization of those belonging to A1 (medical frontliners), A2 (senior citizens) and A3 (persons with comorbidities) continues.
Per requirement of the Department of Health, a vaccination post must at least have a physician, nurse or midwife who will be in charge of screening, assessment and vaccination; 1 allied professional or volunteer for health education and 2 health workers or volunteers from partner agencies who will be tasked for documentation and taking of vital signs.
