Taguig starts registering essential workers under A4

MANILA, Philippines — The local government of Taguig City on Monday announced the start of the registration process for the city’s inoculation of essential workers or those under the A4 priority group.


A4 refers to persons who are required to leave their residence regularly to pursue their work or profession. They are considered as A4 Essential Workers.

The announcement comes shortly after the Philippines launched vaccination against COVID-19  of economic frontliners or those belonging to the A4 priority group on Monday.

Although A4 registration has been opened, the city’s public information office maintained that vaccinations will continue to be prioritized for those under A1 (Health Workers), A2 (Senior Citizens), and A3 (Persons with Comorbidities).

Nevertheless, it assured that it is ready to inoculate essential workers.

“With the new category opening, we expect a higher volume of vaccinees,” the Taguig City Vaccination Task Force said in the city’s statement.

“Taguig will continue to work on making the vaccination in the city fast, safe, and accessible to all Taguigeños,” it added.

According to Taguig PIO, a total of 133,983 doses were administered to Taguig citizens, while 31,007 individuals were fully vaccinated with the second dose, as of June 5.

This accounts for 15.14 percent of its target population and 10 percent of the city’s total population.


The A4 list includes private-sector workers who are physically present in their workplace; employees in government agencies and instrumentalities, including government-owned or controlled corporations and local government units; informal sector workers and self-employed individuals who work outside their homes; and those working in private households.
