ANGELES CITY––The city government has launched a five-day home vaccination program to inoculate more individuals against COVID-19.

The “Suyod Bakuna, Bakunahan sa Tahanan” is set from April 21 to 28.


“We will knock on the doors of every home to find those who have not yet been vaccinated,” Irish Calaguas, chief implementer of this city’s vaccination program, said in a statement.


She said the city government’s two mobile bus clinics would be used for the program, which would kick off Thursday in Margot and Sapangbato villages.

Calaguas said the vaccination teams would not just wait for residents to go to the mobile bus clinics but to every house to inoculate city residents and non-residents in places where the program is held.

City Health Officer Dr. Verona Guevarra said the vaccination site at Angeles City National High School also accommodates walk-in residents and non-residents for the first and second doses and booster shots.

She said Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr. wants to triple the vaccination efforts “to avoid compromising the quality of the vaccine shots.”

On April 2, presidential adviser for entrepreneurship Joey Concepcion disclosed that some 27 million COVID-19 vaccine doses would expire in July as he urged the government to administer the vaccines.

Guevarra said health workers would be deployed in every village to identify unvaccinated residents and those who have not received their booster shots.


The available vaccine brands include Moderna, AstraZeneca, Janssen, and Sinovac.
