The vaccination for the A4 priority group was done in the four malls in the city: Lucky China Town Mall, Robinsons Mall, SM Manila, and SM San Lazaro.

Each mall deployed 750 doses of vaccines.

Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso apologized for the “limited” number of COVID jabs that will be deployed on the first day of A4 vaccination.

Domagoso said the city only has around 4,000 vaccines left for the first dose and have dedicated them to the A4 priority group.

Walk-ins are allowed for the A4 vaccination in the city.

While Domagoso did not disclose the brand of the vaccine to be deployed in the malls, the mayor in his weekly report on Monday (June 7) said the city has Sputnik V vaccines left.

The city also deployed the second dose of Pfizer vaccines for A1, A2, and A3 priority groups in Manila Prince Hotel and Sta. Ana Hospital on Tuesday.
