Vaccine pre-registration for senior citizens extended

BAGUIO CITY – (11 March 2021) – The pre-registration (profiling and master listing) of senior citizens for Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccination is still on.

The City Health Services Office said the activity has been extended to cover other elderly who have not been profiled and master listed yet.

Senior citizens may enlist either through the submission of Google Form Response using the Google Form link for Senior Citizens: or through interviews by roving barangay health workers (BHWs), Barangay Health Emergency Response Teams (BHERTs), barangay nutrition workers (BNWs), district health centers and public and private hospitals, long-term care facilities catering to senior citizens.

The CHSO said the profiling and master listing are just pre-registration activities and are different from the registration proper which will be covered by a separate activity.

There are three priority groups in the vaccination plan:

Group A: Those working in frontline health services will be vaccinated first, all senior citizens (from the oldest), patients with other illnesses (such as diabetes, heart disease, hypertension), non-medical frontline personnel in important sectors ( with uniformed personnel), and indigents or disadvantaged.

Group B: Teachers and social workers, other government staff, other essential workers, groups with high risk of COVID-19 (except senior citizens and disadvantaged), OFWs, and other Filipinos will follow working.

Group C: All other Filipino citizens. – Aileen P. Refuerzo
