As the City Government of Las Piñas continued with expanding sites around the city while vaccinating patients under the categories of A1, A2, A3 and A4, it should be noted that over 100,000 city residents have officially been vaccinated (since vaccination operations first started months ago).

This is according to a news report published by the Manila Bulletin with details from Vice Mayor April Aguilar-Nery. For the precise details, posted below is an excerpt from the said report. Some parts in boldface…

The Las Pinas City Health Office (CHO) recorded a total of 101,059 residents who were given their first and second doses of vaccines against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

Vice-Mayor April Aguilar said for the first dose, a total of 70,770 individuals were given Sinovac, AstraZeneca, Pfzer and Sputnik vaccines while 30, 389 finished their second dose.

Aguilar said of the 101,059 individuals composed of health workers, senior citizens and adults with comorbidities, 1,281 belong to the A4 category.

The report also states that the newest vaccination site at The Village Square Alabang can serve around three hundred patients per day. The Vice Mayor reiterated that walk-ins are not allowed at the vaccination sites as it is part of the police. This was also meant to avoid overcrowding (remember the Pfizer launch in Parañaque City?).
