Pasig opens vaccination sites for elderly
Pasig City opened four more vaccination sites to cater to the inoculation of senior citizens, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.
Mayor Vico Sotto said approximately 4,000 elderly are set to receive their first dose of Covid-19 vaccine this week.
"We hope to cover more as soon as we receive more vaccines from the Department of Health," Sotto said in social media post.
The city government will provide a free shuttle for senior citizens who are scheduled for Covid-19 vaccination.
The Pasig community bus will be operational from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. within the inoculation schedules.
Sotto reminded the residents that the city government does not allow walk-in applicants for the vaccination drive.
"Limitado ang supply ng vaccine mula sa Department of Health. Dito nakadepende ang schedule at dami ng ating pwedeng mabakunahan. Di pa po dumarating ang bakuna na binili ng Pasig City Government (There is a limited vaccine supply from the DOH. The schedule and number of vaccinees will depend on it. The vaccines procured by the city government have not yet arrived)," he said.
Sotto urged residents to sign up for the city-wide vaccination campaign.
