The Pasay City government has already conducted a simulation exercise at its biggest vaccination site at SM MOA to determine its preparedness in handling more patients, Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano said Friday.

Rubiano said the city government is targeting to open their biggest vaccination site in the second week of May.

A source from city hall said a representative from the Department of Health (DOH) was present during the inspection of the facility.

The city government’s “Vacc to the Future” Task Force has been conducting meetings to come up with a recommendation for manpower tasking that will be submitted to Rubiano.

Once the task force submitted their recommendation to Rubiano, the mayor will formally endorse it to the DOH to get the needed accreditation.

Rubiano said the city’s biggest vaccination center was designed to accommodate more residents as well as those coming from other places who want to be vaccinated.

She also said the vaccination center can accommodate around 2,000 individuals a day.

The city government is also offering free shuttle service to the vaccination site.
