Recent data provided to the local government showed that 1,100 workers already received their first dose of either CoronaVac or AstraZeneca from Quezon City General Hospital, 488 from the Novaliches District Hospital, and 360 from the Rosario Maclang Bautista General Hospital.

A total of 19 workers from Level-1 and Level-2 hospitals in the city were also inoculated.

The remaining workers from the City Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit, Barangay Health Response Team, and Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office, also received the jab.

“To get our frontliners vaccinated is an achievement since this will provide them protection especially in the performance of their duties,” Mayor Joy Belmonte said.

The local government said that about 6,000 more frontliners, including those who work in clinics, diagnostic laboratories, home-for-the aged, and rehabilitation centers, will also get inoculated once more vaccines arrive.
