The provincial government said it plans to use at least 400 doses of COVID-19 vaccines per day at the mall-based vaccination site that would operate from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

Dr. William Dacanay, provincial vaccination program operations manager, said La Union had inoculated at least 38 percent of the eligible population in the province.

Health officials plan to reach at least 60-percent vaccination coverage among eligible residents by December, said Dacanay.
