Olivarez said the city government aims to inoculate more residents under its “Bakunado, Protektadong Paranaqueno Kontra COVID-19” vaccination program.

The MVP team led by Dr. Jefferson Pagsisihan, medical director of Ospital ng Paranaque 1 and 2, has already visited three areas with high record of COVID-19 cases to inoculate senior citizens and adults with comorbidities who could not go to the vaccination sites.

The three areas are the Tahanan Village in Barangay BF, Don Bosco Annex, and Greenheights Subdivision.

“This program is part of the city’s ongoing efforts to protect residents from COVID-19 particularly those belonging to the most vulnerable sectors, “ Olivarez said.

Olivarez said that as of June 4, the city has 393 active cases and 42 new cases.
