The Pasay City government vaccinated 14 senior citizens per barangay with the available supply of 3,000 Sinovac vaccines.

Mayor Emi Calixto –Rubiano said the City Health Office (CHO) has 3,000 vaccines that can used to inoculate senior citizens.

Rubiano said on April 29, the city government scheduled only seven senior citizens per barangay for vaccination due to limited supplies.

Dr. Grace Noble of the CHO said that with the availability of 3,000 vaccines for senior citizens, the city government doubled the number to 14 senior citizens per barangay.

The vaccination of senior citizens were conducted at the Andres Bonifacio Elementary School, Pasay West High School, T. Paez Elementary School, and the covered courts in Barangays 190 and 194.

Rubiano said the city government’s “Vacc to the Futre” vaccination program had already vaccinated a total of 25,934 individuals composed mostly of medical health frontliners, senior citizens, and adults with comorbidities.

She said the city government aims to vaccinate 14,000 individuals per week to help the national government attain its goal of achieving herd immunity at the soonest possible time.
