Two more vaccination sites have been added by the Taguig City Government to boost its vaccination rollout against coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
The city opened the 4th Community Vaccine Center in Western Bicutan National High School in Barangay Western Bicutan and the 3rd Mega Vaccination Hub in Samsung Hall, SM Aura in BGC Taguig.
Taguig City continues its vaccination rollout for health workers, senior citizens, and persons with comorbidities.
The local government said the two additional sites will complement the existing two (2) Mega Vaccination Hubs at the Lakeshore area and Vista Mall Parking Building.
Taguig City Mayor Lino Cayetano reported that as of April 12, Taguig City has already vaccinated a total of 17,375 citizens; while 926 of the 9,445 vaccinated frontliners already received their 2nd dose.
“The city continues to vaccinate those who are in categories A1, A2, and A3. We prioritize them because they are the most vulnerable sector. These are the most vulnerable sectors that if infected, there are high chances that they will experience severe symptoms,” he said.
Cayetano also said the local government eyes on opening the vaccination hubs on weekends and holidays to immunize residents as soon as possible.
Residents, meanwhile, are encouraged to enroll in Taguig TRACE to secure their vaccine registration, as this is part of the city government’s streamlined vaccination process. AAC
