Navotas accepts walk-in vaccine applicants
Navotas City allowed walk-in vaccination for residents to increase the uptake of inoculations against COVID-19, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.
Senior citizens and individuals 18 to 59 years old with comorbidities may walk in for vaccination at Kaunlaran High School, San Jose Academy, Tumana Health Center, and Tanza Health Center.
“We did a trial yesterday and we were able to inoculate 244 of the 300 target vaccinees. We were glad of this turnout and decided to implement the system in three other vaccination sites,” Mayor Toby Tiangco announced on Saturday.
Tiangco said city authorities have been receiving messages from residents who are very eager to get vaccinated but don’t have a schedule yet.
“By offering a walk-in system, those eligible and interested could avail of the vaccine at the soonest,” he said.
“As of now, we have four vaccination sites. Three can accommodate 300 scheduled vaccinees and 150 walk-ins. One is solely for 300 walk-ins,” he added.
The city mayor said residents who wish to be vaccinated must register at https://covax.navotas.gov.ph/.
“We can accept only those listed in our NavoBakuna COVID-19 vaccination program. This is why we always remind the public to have themselves registered, including all their family members aged 18 and above,” he said.
The Kaunlaran High School can accommodate 150 senior citizens from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 150 persons with comorbidity from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
The vaccination will be done on a first come, first served basis.
Meanwhile, the San Jose Academy, Tumana Health Center, and Tanza Health Center will start accepting 150 walk-ins from 1 p.m. onwards.
