About 75 vaccination sites are participating in the three days of ‘National Vaccination Day' in Manila starting this Monday.
According to the Manila Public Information Office, almost all vaccines used in recent months are open.
But a reminder to the public, each vaccination site only has a dedicated priority group, so it's a good idea to check the Manila PIO's Facebook page for details.
There will be 44 health centers to be vaccination sites for the first and second doses of priority group A1 to A5 category only. Some of the health centers are in Parola, Smokey Mountain, Earnshaw, Pedro Gil, and others.
There are 18 public schools also participating in the program. These public schools or so-called community school sites are only for minors 12 to 17 years old and for booster shots of the A1 to A3 category. These include Isabelo Delos Reyes Elementary School, Ramon Magsaysay High School, Sta. Ana Elementary School and others.
Three private schools are also involved in the vaccination. This is only for 12 to 17 years old. The schools are Manila Cathedral School, Holy Child Catholic School, and La Consolacion College Manila.
