To put things in perspective, more than 168,000 kids aged 5 to 11 nationwide registered for the vaccination. Las Piñas City’s registration for the 5-11 age-group is ongoing and more than 1.2 million vaccinations in the city were recorded covering all age-groups and types of patients.

Going back to the launch of vaccination for kids aged 5-11 in the city, a news report by the Manila Bulletin states that the city government had set up safari and toys and carnival-inspired vaccination sites. The same report quoted Mayor Imelda Aguilar saying that the local government unit (LGU) is aiming to vaccinate around 1,500 to 2,000 young minors at the three vaccination sites, specifically at SM Center, Robinsons Place and The Tent.
