According to Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto, the local government unit (LGU) has vaccinated 1,338 male PDLs, 137 females PDLs, and 110 individuals from the Metro Psych Maybunga (psychiatric hospital).

Meanwhile, Sotto also reminded its unvaccinated residents to check their Pasig Health Monitor (PHM) profiles via Pasig Pass if they are encountering problems with their COVID-19 vaccination schedule.

"Paalala po sa mga gustong magpabakuna, please follow instructions in the infographic. Halos lahat ng nakapag update ng Pasig Health Monitor profile (via Pasig Pass) na kwalipikado ay nabakunahan na (To all those who wish to be vaccinated, please follow the instructions in the infographic. Almost all who have updated their Pasig Health Monitor profile (via Pasig Pass) who are qualified have been already vaccinated)," Sotto said.

"Kung matagal na nagparehistro pero di pa natatawagan, may error po yan. Minsan may maling digit sa cellphone number. Minsan gumagawa ng multiple profile- dapat isa lang at iba pa. Kung nahihirapan sa online, may onsite profiling sa Mega Parking. Pwede rin magpa-assist sa health center (If you have already registered and still haven't been called, there could be an error in that. Sometimes it may be a wrong cell phone number digit. Or it could be that you created multiple profiles, you should only create one. If you are having difficulties online, there is an onsite profiling at the Mega Parking. You may also ask assistance at the health center)," he added.

Last September 1, the LGU announced that residents may now update their Pasig Health Monitor records in the city’s vaccination sites.

The PHM is a tool that helps the City Health Department improve its health services and speed up the response time of its medical services.
