City Health Officer Dr. Maria Sarah B. Talla reported to Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo that the 3rd and final day of the 2nd National Vaccination drive that started Monday was successfully concluded today.
Mayor Remollo decided that the national vaccination drive be postponed to December 20-22 instead of the earlier schedule of December 15-17 due to the need to prepare and keep the people safe from Typhoon ODETTE.

Residents who want to get vaccinated are advised to first register online to be included in the master list. Vaccination shall be on a first-come first-served basis.
