MANILA, Philippines – The Taguig City government opened its fourth and fifth vaccination sites in Maharlika Elementary School in Barangay Maharlika and EM’s Signal Village Elementary School in Barangay Central Signal on Wednesday.
The two new vaccination centers are the second and third community vaccination to be opened by Taguig after the first community vaccination center in RP Cruz Elementary School in Barangay New Lower Bicutan.
Meanwhile, two “Mega Vaccination Hubs” are located at the Lakeshore area in Brgy. Lower Bicutan and at the Vista Mall Parking Building in Brgy. Calzada and the first community vaccination center in RP Cruz Elementary School in Barangay New Lower Bicutan.
“Vaccination is one of the main components to contain the virus and move forward to the new normal. Despite the case surges and being under the ECQ guideline, Taguig is pushing all its efforts to strengthen our science-based and expert-approved initiatives,” Mayor Lino Cayetano said in a statement.
The city started vaccinating those who belong in COVID-19 vaccine priority list, which consist of senior citizens and non-senior adults with comorbidities, on March 31.
Taguig has also started giving the 2nd dose to medical frontliners.
The city government said that it will continue to inoculate Taguigeños until supplies from the national government last.
The city expects COVID-19 vaccines from AstraZeneca, Covovax, Covaxin, and Moderna to arrive by the third quarter of 2021.
All Taguig residents are encouraged to register in TRACE (Taguig Registry for Access and Citizen Engagement) Taguig’s contact tracing app, for their vaccination schedule.
