Manila begins vaccination of healthcare workers' immediate family members

The local government of Manila has started vaccinating the immediate family members of the city’s healthcare workers on July 1.


The vaccination for family members of A1 was held in Sta. Ana Hospital, Ospital ng Maynila, Gat Andres Bonifacio, Justice Jose Abad Santos, Moises Salvador Elementary School, and Ospital ng Tondo.

Each site had 1,000 first dose vaccines to deploy.

Family members of medical frontline workers should bring an ID, printed waiver form, and their QR code.

On May 27, the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) issued Resolution No. 117 which puts immediate family members of healthcare workers under the priority group A1 “should supply be available.”

As of June 30, the city of Manila has deployed 631,463 vaccines, 465,672 of which were first doses, and 165,791 were second doses.
