OLONGAPO CITY — The City Health Office (CHO) announced Tuesday, March 8, that it would now allow “walk-ins” for its pediatric COVID-19 vaccination as the local government continues its mass inoculation against the viral disease.

Parents or guardians of 5- to 11-year-old children are still required to register their kids online but do not have to wait for a schedule when going to the vaccine site.
