The Pasig City government reminded passengers to always wear face masks, and face shields especially when they are aboard the community buses.
Mayor Vico Sotto appealed to city residents for patience due to the limited supply of AstraZenca vaccines for seniors.
“Let’s be patient. The vaccination team will do its best but keep in mind the limited supplies,” he said on Twitter.
