Mobile vaxx on hand to administer boosters
The City Health Services Office (CHSO) is prepared to conduct mobile vaccination operations in workplaces, communities, places of convergence and even in events.
This is in line with the directive of
Mayor Benjamin Magalong to ramp up booster rollout in the city in compliance with the call of President Bongbong Marcos for leveling up of booster accomplishment nationwide.
Companies, barangays, organizers and residents wishing to avail of vaccination services may contact the nearest district health centers for scheduling and coordination.
City Health Services Officer Dr. Rowena Galpo said this is among the CHSO’s strategies to beef up booster dispensation in the city.
The city has overshot the national target for primary dosage but has yet to improve on the accomplishment of targets on first and second boosters.
The Dept. of Health has just expanded the coverage of booster dosage to those aged 50 years old and up and to 18-49 with comorbidities.
Last July 29, the office set up a mobile vaccination center for city government employees and willing clients. – Aileen P. Refuerzo
