BACOOR CITY, Cavite – The local government unit (LGU) is all set for the arrival of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccines for its residents.
On Monday (March 1), Mayor Lani Mercado-Revilla unveiled the LGU’s freezers and refrigerators that can hold up to 27,000 vials or 135,800 vaccine doses.
“Naghanda na kami ng mga freezers para sa Pzifer at Moderna, gayundin ang mga refrigerators para sa iba pang brands ng mga bakuna laban sa COVID-19, (We prepared freezers for Pzifer and Moderna, as well as refrigerators for other brands of COVID-19 vaccines),” Revilla said in a statement.
“Hindi natin alam kailan darating ang mga bakuna sa ating Lungsod pero mas mabuti nang handa tayo, (We don’t know when the vaccines will arrive at our city but it’s best to be prepared),” she added.
The city government is hoping to be one of the LGUs to receive vaccines from the national government, given that the city has the highest number of COVID-19 cases in Cavite and is the closest to the National Capital Region (NCR).
Meanwhile, the LGU continues to train its Vaccine Operation Center personnel and is set to hold vaccine rollout simulation activities in its Mega Vaccine Hubs in Bacoor Elementary School in Barangay Alima, and Bacoor Coliseum at Barangay Molino 3.
On Feb. 10, the city government conducted a vaccination rollout simulation in Southern Tagalog Regional Hospital.
