Last March 11, the city government led a ceremonial vaccination at the Ospital ng Imus, where the city’s doctors, nurses, and medical frontliners were given their first dose of vaccine.

In his speech during the ceremony streamed live through Facebook, Maliksi said that the LGU is working to curb the spread of the virus now that the city is experiencing a surge in the number of cases.

“Base nga po sa report ng ating mga contact tracer, hindi lang po double, hindi nga rin po triple, quadruple yung mga mino-monitor (Based on our contract tracers’ report, the number of COVID-19 cases hasn’t only doubled or tripled, but quadrupled),” Maliksi said.

“Siguro dahil nga sa COVID fatigue nagiging lax na ang ating mga kababayan (Maybe because of COVID fatigue, our residents have become lax),” he added.

Aside from its fixed vaccination sites and drive-thru vaccination system, Maliksi also mentioned a plan to launch a remote vaccination site in partnership with a bus service provider.
