Taguig plans to hold vaccination in malls
More vaccination hubs will be put up in various malls in Taguig after the city government forged partnership agreements with four companies, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.
Mayor Lino Cayetano on Sunday said the city government has already inked agreements with Vista Mall, Megaworld, SM Group, and Ayala Corporation to establish vaccination hubs accessible to all.
"I take it as a sign of trust in the local government that our big stakeholders have all reached out to help with our community vaccination," he said on Facebook.
The city’s existing seven sites have already vaccinated 20,292 as of April 15.
Cayetano also credited the downtrend in the city's coronavirus cases to the "local government's strong partnerships with its citizens and business community."
The city only has 185 active cases as of Saturday.
Taguig has three mega-vaccination hubs that can accommodate at least 1,000 daily, four community centers for 400 individuals each daily, and on Friday, launched a mobile vaccination bus for those unable to go to inoculation centers.
Taguig likewise has 34 testing centers and deployed disease surveillance officers in partnership with the private and public sectors.
"Vaccination will be key to moving faster towards the new future," said Cayetano.
He added the city government wants to lead the shift to the new normal while encompassing a whole-of-society approach.
"Relying on the strengths of various individuals and institutions, we believe we can make 2021 the year we bounce back and recover," he said.
