The City Government will continue its roll-out of COVID-19 vaccines to cover more senior citizens. As well as for persons with disabilities and bed-ridden residents in barangays in the metro.
“I am very pleased with the turn-out of our vaccination in Barangay Calumpang, so we want also other barangays to do the same to make the vaccines accessible to the vulnerable sector,” Mayor Jerry P. Treñas said.
Starting next week, the vaccination team will visit the senior citizens, persons with disabilities and bed-ridden residents in all districts and all barangays.
Report shows that despite having tickets for vaccination in any of the city’s seven vaccination sites, elderly cannot usually personally appear because of their situation.
Barangay Calumpang in Molo district was the first to conduct its own community vaccination July 9, 2021. It will again have another round of vaccination on July 15 to 16, 2021 targeting a total of 600 residents.
Other barangays target to start initially the vaccination of their vulnerable sector. These are San Juan, Calaparan, East Baluarte, and adjoining barangays in Molo district.
