Home vaccination service is now being served for residents in the City of Paranaque.
Mayor Edwin Olivarez said at least 16 people had already been vaccinated in their homes in barangays Sun Valley, BF, and San Isidro last weekend.
He said the Department of Health allowed them to conduct house-to-house vaccination for COVID-19 but only for those who are not able to visit vaccination centers such as seniors and bedridden patients.
Those who want to avail the free vaccination may call their respective barangay health centers or register online via paranaquevip.ph.
“Online registration is needed for residents looking to get inoculated. Those who do not fit the criteria are advised to visit the vaccination center,” Olivarez said.
The city chief executive said the local government is conducting house-to-house vaccination for COVID-19 every weekend to all seniors and bedridden patients.
Meanwhile, city chief health officer Dr. Olga Virtusio said the second dose for patients who received their first dose of Sinovac vaccine last March 30 and 31, at San Antonio Elementary School Gym, will be made at SM City Sucat, building B, on April 28, at 8 am to 4 pm.
She advised patients to bring their respective vaccine information passbook or vaccine card. “The event is exclusively for patients who received the first dose. No walk in is allowed,’ she added.
The city also started the “Bakunado Protektado Paranaqueno: COVID-19 Vaccination Program” in several shopping malls.
The SM City BF and Sucat branches partnered with the local government to provide a vaccination venue like vacant parking spaces to ensure the health and safety of the public.
