Mandaluyong brings vax drive to schools

The city government of Mandaluyong would hold vaccination operations against Covid-19 in various schools, Mayor Benjamin Abalos Sr. said yesterday.

Among the schools chosen for the program were the Rizal Technological University, Andres Bonifacio Integrated School, and Isaac Lopez Integrated School.

Any student who wishes to get vaccinated against the virus will be accommodated as long as they have the consent of their parents. The school-based jab sites will operate from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

City Health Department personnel present at the vaccination sites will help students in registering at the MandaVax portal if they haven’t registered yet.

Abalos said more vaccination sites will be set up in schools in the following days.

We know that getting vaccinated is crucial for our children who will attend face-to-face classes. We want them to be protected,” he added.

“And, of course, we are reminding all our students to continue practicing the minimum health protocols even if they are vaccinated,” Abalos said.

In Quezon City, over 500 vendors and those residing near the Commonwealth Market received primary and booster Covid-19 vaccination doses.

The vaccination at the market was under the auspices of the Department of Health and the Quezon City government’s PinasLakas inoculation program.

QC task force action officer Dr. Maria Lourdes Eleria said the city started the week-long vaccination drive in various markets and Talipapas in Quezon City.
