The Quezon City government will open 37,000 online slots for its one-day COVID-19 vaccination drive on Thursday, September 23.
The online booking will start at 6 a.m on Tuesday, Sept. 21, through the QC Vax Easy Plus system.
The city government said the new system allows residents to select the vaccination time and venue convenient to them, pending vaccine availability.
“We hope that through this modification, we can reduce the number of defaulters or individuals who have been given slots by the city but don’t show up at the site because the time and date assigned to them doesn’t suit their schedule,” Mayor Joy Belmonte said in a statement on Monday, Sept. 20.
“We must remember that our vaccines are sensitive. All allocated vaccines for the day must be used up so their integrity is not compromised by having to transport them back to the cold storage facility, then later to the site again,” she added.

The city government has so far administered around three million doses of vaccines for both first and second doses.
