To prevent such illegal activity, Aguilar ordered the deployment of additional barangay watchmen at their 15 vaccination sites.

Paul San Miguel, Public Information Office chief, said the mayor reminded city residents not to entertain calls from unscrupulous individuals engaged in the selling of COVID-19 vaccines or offering slots.

San Miguel said Aguilar also asked the residents to report to the police or Office of the Mayor immediately once they were approached or received a call selling vaccines or offering slots for inoculation.

“The mayor is thankful that the city residents are very disciplined and do not engage in such illegal activity of selling vaccines or offering slots,” San Miguel said.

The PIO added that vaccines are being administered to city residents for free.
