Belmonte said the Quezon City government has already established  Task Force Vax to Normal which is mandated to carry out the smooth rollout of the city’s vaccination program.

The city government earlier announced it is eyeing to vaccinate 1.6 million residents against COVID-19 during a period of from six to eight months.

Meanwhile, active COVID-19 cases in the Philippines are approaching the 100,000-mark as the Department of Health (DOH) reported a new record-high of 8,773 additional cases on Thursday.

According to DOH, the recorded new infections pushed the active cases nationwide to 99,891 as of March 25 – the highest following the detection of more transmissible SARS-CoV-2 variants – as the country’s total case count reached 693,048 since the pandemic reached the Philippines in 2020.
