Las Piñas City Mayor Imelda Aguilar expressed appreciation to the management of SM Center and SM Southmall for offering spaces in their malls as vaccination sites.
Aguilar said the two COVID-19 vaccination sites that will open starting Wednesday (May 19) are located at the activity area of SM Center on the second floor and at the cinema section of SM Southmall on the fourth floor.
She said the two sites are additional to the 12 current vaccination areas serving the residents from 20 barangays in the city.
The mayor said the two new vaccination sites can now accommodate more patients who wanted to be inoculated.
Aguilar said the new sites would initially accept about 200 senior citizens and adults with comorbidities on the first day, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
“We are happy that a growing number of residents are now willing to be vaccinated as we have been encouraging them all along, stressing the importance of their protection from the fatal effects of COVID-19,” Aguilar said.
To date, those who were given the first dose of vaccines are already on their second dose and being scheduled along with the residents in categories 2 and 3.
The City Health Office (CHO) reported that a total of 37,364 persons received their first dose of vaccines and 10,244 their second dose.
