COVID-19 Crisis: Vaccination efforts in Las Piñas City ongoing, locals encouraged to get registered

Finally, the local campaign against COVID-19 is on the roll in the City of Las Piñas! The other day (March 9, 2021), the Las Piñas City Government formally started its COVID-19 vaccination program with the theme “Safe Las Piñero, All Vaccinated” for the three hundred medical front-liners of the University of Perpetual Help Medical Center at the vaccination site in University of Perpetual Help System Dalta (UPHSD) Gymnasium, in Barangay Pamplona Tres.

The program was spearheaded by Vice-Mayor April Aguilar-Nery and Dr. Ma. Paz Corrales, Assistant Regional Director of the Department of Health-National Capital Region (DOH-NCR). Also present at the activity were City Administrator Reynaldo Balagulan, members of the City Council, doctors of the City Health Office (CHO) Dr. Ferdinand Eusebio, Dr. Julie Gonzales, Dr. ELeenor Gumpal, Dr. Julio Javier, and department heads.

The Sinovac vaccine was first injected into medical front-liners Dr. Jose Edzel Tamayo (Medical Affairs Executive Officer of UPHMC); Elvie Carandang (Finance and Accounting Manager) and Neil Jaymalin (Chief of Staff), all of whom served as the city’s “COVID-19 influencers” to encourage Las Piñas residents to immediately register and get vaccinated for their protection against the China virus.

Under the leadership of Mayor Imelda “Mel” T. Aguilar, the City Government aims to vaccinate all city residents after securing 500,000 doses of vaccine after allocating P250-million for the purchase of additional vaccine against COVID-19 for residents.

As far as the City Government is concerned, the security of the health, safety and welfare of the constituents remain priorities. Previously the City Government and its strategic partners conducted a simulation on how the vaccination will take place.

Everyone is reminded to continue to be careful, be disciplined and adhere to the health and safety rules.
