This after it was temporarily suspended on Good Friday (April 2) to “maintain the high quality” of the vaccination sites and to give time for frontline health workers to rest.

According to the city government, the vaccination of people with comorbidities will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

All patients will be asked to present a medical certificate, recent prescription of medicine, surgical abstract or discharge summary, or any proof that they have comorbidity.

There are two vaccination sites per district. These are District 1 – Emilio Jacinto Elementary School and Isabelo Delos Reyes Elementary School; District 2 – Osmena High School and Benitez Elementary School; District 3 – Bonifacio Elementary School and Pedro Guevarra Elementary School; District 4 – Ramon Magsaysay High School and General Malvar Elementary School; District 5 – Rafael Palma Elementary School and Justo Lucban Elementary School; and District 6 – Jacinto Zamora Elementary School and EARIST College.

Meanwhile, health care workers under the A1 category of the vaccination priority list may go to the sites to get vaccinated and present their Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) license.

The Manila Health Department (MHD) said senior citizens will not be allowed to have Sinovac Life Science’s CoronaVac vaccine even if they present a waiver following the guidelines by the Department of Health (DOH). 

The city government targets to vaccinate 11,000 people under the A3 category covering 18 to 59 years old.
