The Las Pinas City government’s biggest vaccination site located at The Tent, Vista Global South in C5 Extension, is now open to serve residents and can accommodate around 650 to 1,000 vaccinees a day.
Paul San Miguel, public Information chief, said the new vaccination site is an addition to the 14 existing centers that provide service to around 300 people a day.
San Miguel said the city government now has a total of 15 vaccination sites around the city and will add five more centers to speed-up the vaccination program of the city.
He also said the city government already vaccinated around 82,526 residents with the first and second doses against COVID-19.
The Las Pinas City government also emphasized the importance of vaccination in a Facebook post and reminded residents who have not been inoculated to register for it.
San Miguel said the city government is also giving free face masks to those who are given the vaccines in all vaccination centers.
Mayor Imelda Aguilar also urged city residents to observe the basic health protocols to stop the spread of the virus.
Based on the report of the City Health Office on June 1, the city has recorded a total of 266 active cases with 43 new cases.
