The controversial mega vaccination center built by tycoon Enrique Razon Jr. on a vacant lot of the Nayong Pilipino Foundation in Parañaque City was opened to the public on Thursday.

Gonzalez said they aim to administer 15,000 vaccinations a day and the facility, called Solaire ICTSI Foundation Inc. Vaccine Center, is open to anyone, regardless of their residence.

However, appointments should be booked through the Parañaque local government’s website (m.oneparanaque.info).
