Vice Mayor April Aguilar met today with the doctors of the City Health Office headed by Dr. Julie Gonzalez to lay out the city’s preparation for vaccination of Senior Citizens and Health workers of their 2nd Booster shot to start (Monday) May 23,2022.

Vice Mayor knows very well the procedure of vaccination of 2nd booster and emphasized that Mayor Mel Aguilar wants to reach (out) and explain well to everyone what needs to be known to clear the doubts of our patients (and countrymen).

Vice Mayor Aguilar also suggested reopening community sites in Verdant Covered Court, Golden Acres Covered Court, Almanza Uno Covered Court, San Antonio Covered Court, Bambusetum Covered Court, Gatchalian Covered Court and T. S Cruz Covered Court as additional vaccination sites to be used for the 2nd booster shot.

COVID-19 Crisis: Las Piñas City Mayor orders information campaign emphasizing booster shots

There is no denying the fact that the number of fully vaccinated COVID-19 patients here in the Philippines who successfully got boosted is growing at a sluggish pace. As of April 19, 2022, less than 13 million patients received their booster shots and there are tens of millions of fully vaccinated patients who still have not been boosted.

Knowing the sluggish pace of new booster recipients and the possibility of a surge of new COVID-19 cases, the City Government of Muntinlupa emphasized the important of booster shots to its constituents. More recently in the City of Las Piñas, a new information campaign designed to enlighten locals about the importance of getting boosted was launched as ordered by Mayor Imelda Aguilar, the Manila Bulletin reported.

To put things in perspective, posted below are selected excerpts from the Manila Bulletin article. Some parts in boldface…

Las Piñas City Mayor Imelda Aguilar has ordered for a massive information campaign through social media on the importance of getting booster shots now the the city was identified as among the six cities in the National Capital Region (NCR) registering positive Covid-19 growth rate.

According to Paul San Miguel, head of the Public Information Office, Aguilar told the City Health Office (CHO) to continue the community vaccination through house-to-house, administering booster shots at the city’s barangay health centers, and by placing posts in each barangay where residents can easily receive their vaccines.

Aguilar said the city government also placed swabbing microscopy centers in six barangays, namely, Almanza Uno, Aldana, Pulanglupa Dos, CAA, Pamplona Uno, and Talon Uno.

She said CHO medical technologists at the microscopy center will conduct the antigen and RT-PCR testings.

Aguilar also reminded residents to always strictly observe the public health protocols like the wearing of face mask and observing physical distancing.

Before this renewed vaccination/booster effort happened, take note that as of March 24, less than 200,000 people in the city got boosted. Also the City Government launched a vaccination bus and earned praise from the Department of Health (DOH) and the Metro Manila Center for Health Development (MMCHD).

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a Las Piñas City resident, have you been fully vaccinated already? Are there many fully vaccinated patients among the members of your local community who still have not availed of their respective booster shots?

COVID-19 Crisis: Las Piñas City earns praise from DOH and MMCHD

The City of Las Piñas is on a roll once again as it as Mayor Imelda Aguilar announced that they earned the praise of the Department of Health (DOH) and the Metro Manila Center for Health Development (MMCHD) for their orderly setup with regards to the vaccine and ancillary storage facilities, the Manila Bulletin reported.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…

Las Pinas City Mayor Imelda Aguilar said the city’s vaccine and ancillary storage areas earned praise from the Department of Health (DOH) and the Metro Manila Center for Health Development (MMCHD) for its orderly setup.

Aguilar said the team of DOH Central Office and the MMCHD Logistics visited the city’s vaccine and ancillary storage areas on March 15.

She said the team composed of Irah Umadac, Ferdinand dela Cruz, Anne Bernabe and Carl Valeriano were escorted by City Health Office (CHO) officer-in-charge Dr. Julie Gonzales, Dra. Eleenor Gumpal and Dra. Anne Jagape, both of the National Immunization Program, during the inspection.

The mayor said the DOH and MCCHD commented that the city’s vaccine and ancillary storage facilities were properly maintained and the vaccines allocated to the city were well accounted for.

It is very nice to hear that the local authorities are doing good work with their vaccine and ancillary storage facilities. While we don’t know yet exactly how many doses of COVID-19 vaccines (including booster shots) are stored, rest assured they have supplies for the locals who need vaccinating or boosting. Take note that the City Government and its strategic partners are still doing COVID-19 vaccine operations around the city and recently their total inoculation count surpassed 1.3 million and to make vaccination more accessible to the locals, they also launched the vaccination bus.

COVID-19 Crisis: Vaccination bus launched in Las Piñas City!

Have you ever imagined entering a passenger bus not for traveling but rather to get vaccinated for COVID-19? That sort of thing became a reality in the City of Las Piñas as the City Government launched its bus for COVID-19 vaccination (referred to locally as “Bakuna Bus”) as part of their effort to reach out to the unvaccinated constituents while also participating officially in the latest 3-day national vaccination drive, according to a Manila Bulletin news report.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…

The Las Pinas City government deployed on Thursday (March 10) a “Bakuna Bus” to administer Covid-19 vaccines to residents who remain unvaccinated.

Mayor Imelda Aguilar said the City Health Office (CHO), in coordination with the Las Pinas Rotary Club, deployed the vaccine bus to Barangay CAA as part of the three-day national vaccination on March 10 to 12.

Aguilar said the bus will serve the residents who are still unvaccinated and those who are set to receive their booster shot.

She said the city government is calling on all the unvaccinated and those who want to get the booster shot in Barangay CAA and nearby barangays to visit the mobile vaccination unit.

The mayor said the deployment of the bus is also part of the city government’s “Bayanihan sa Bakunahan sa Las Pinas”.

Aguilar said the vaccination team headed by CHO officer-in-charge Dr. Julie Gonzalez also conducts house-to-house vaccinations for senior citizens and persons with disability (PWDs).

She assured the residents that getting vaccinated against Covid-19 is very safe and will help boost their immune system against the virus.

The above report ended stating that mayor Aguilar assured local residents that getting vaccinated for COVID-19 is very safe and will boost their immune system. Take note that recently, the City Government announced that its total inoculation count surpassed 1.3 million and that includes a little over 180,000 booster shots recorded.

As already confirmed by various sources, the urgency for people to get vaccinated or boosted has faded as Metro Manila and some other places around the country have been placed under the Alert Level 1 status which allows more people to move around more freely complete with a reduction on restrictions. The challenge for both the national government and the local government units (LGUs) is to convince the people – especially the unvaccinated – to avail of the free vaccination shots.

Back to the vaccination bus, this project by City Government and its strategic partner is a nice idea and could help the local authorities reach out to the people in close proximity to the residential areas. There are lots of vaccination sites around the city for local to visit but the local authorities apparently decided to go all-out to get more people immunized. It also remains to be seen if other local governments will be inspired to come up with their own vaccination buses.

For all the unvaccinated people reading this, any Las Piñas resident who has yet to get registered for the free COVID-19 vaccines can learn the ways by clicking here. Anyone who is ready and willing to register online can click bit.ly/LasPiñasVaccination

Meanwhile, the City Government is already handling the online registration process for COVID-19 vaccination for local minors (aged 5 to 17) which can be done at http://laspinascityonline.laspinascity.gov.ph/eCVRS/

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a resident of Las Piñas City, what is your reaction to this recent development? If a vaccination bus arrives at your local community, will you avail of the free vaccination service? Do you want your homeowners’ association (HOA) to reach out to the City Government to have the vaccination bus serve your local community?
