MANILA, Philippines — The Office of the Vice President (OVP) Swab Cab will visit Novaliches and Payatas districts in Quezon City this week.

Swab Cab is the initiative of the OVP to conduct mobile free antigen COVID-19 testing.


“So bukas, nandu’n kami sa Novaliches, pupunta po ako du’n. ‘Yung anak ko nga nag-volunteer na swabber. Nasa Novaliches tayo bukas pero open siya to anyone kahit hindi taga-Novaliches, open siya to anyone. Libre po ito,” Robredo announced during the BISErbisyong LENI program on DZXL.

(Tomorrow, we will be in Novaliches, I will go there. My daughter volunteered as a swabber. We will be in Novaliches but it is open to anyone. It is free.)


The Swab Cab operations will be held at Immaculate Conception Church grounds, said the vice president.

She added that the Swab Cab will be in Payatas, also in Quezon City, on Wednesday.

“Sa Wednesday, kung hindi ako nagkakamali, nasa Payatas, nasa Payatas B kami,” she said.

(On Wednesday, if I’m not mistaken, we will be in Payatas B.)

The Swab Cab will test individuals from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Robredo expressed gratitude to the Quezon City government for supporting the initiative.
