Last time around, SM Southmall and SM Center Las Piñas became the new locations for the additional COVID-19 vaccination sites in the City of Las Piñas and went on with the vaccination services of local residents who previously registered through the city’s system.
That’s not all, however. According to a recent report by the Manila Bulletin, the City Government of Las Piñas announced that it will add not one, not two, but FIVE more vaccination sites so that they can reach their target of vaccinating six thousand people per day.
To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the Manila Bulletin report. Some parts in boldface…
The Las Piñas city government will add five more vaccination sites to achieve its goal of inoculating 6,000 persons per day.
Vice-Mayor April Aguilar-Nery disclosed the plan of adding five vaccination sites in the next two weeks as part of the city government’s “Ligtas na Las Piñeros, Lahat Bakunado” vaccination program.
During the Bakuna Benefits segment of Angkas chief transport advocate George Royeca, Nery said the city currently has a total of 15 vaccination sites from 10 barangay covered courts, two hospitals — the University of Perpetual Help Medical Center and the Las Piñas Doctors Hospital, and three additional sites at the SM Southmall, SM Center, and Robinsons Mall.
The vice-mayor said the city government is planning to add five more vaccination sites since Mayor Imelda Aguilar wants all city residents to be vaccinated against COVID-19. The city also aims to inoculate 300 residents per vaccination site per day for a total of 6,000 persons per day.
Nery said the city government purchased 300 AstraZeneca and 200 Novavax vaccines to achieve the mayor’s goal of inoculating all city residents.
To date, a total of 40,000 frontline health workers, senior citizens, and adults with comorbidities have received their first dose of vaccines and 15 for the second dose.
If you do the math, the City Government’s plan of establishing new sites will push their current total of 15 vaccination sites to 20 vaccination sites. While the report published details sourced from Vice Mayor April Aguilar-Nery, there is no indication as to when exactly will the planned new vaccination sites be set up. No details yet as to where exactly will the five new vaccination sites be set up at. It would be nice, however, if all the five upcoming new vaccination sites will be established in airconditioned places so that it will be more comfortable for the patients, especially the senior citizens (and the less abled persons among them).

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: Are you a Las Piñas resident who is happy to learn that five brand new vaccination sites will be established within the city? If you were able to visit any of the vaccination sites located at the open-air, covered basketball courts in the city, was the venue comfortable enough?
Does this latest announcement from the City Government encourage you to get registered and line up for the free COVID-19 vaccine?
