AC deploys 5 bus clinics for booster shots; joins nat’l vax day

ANGELES CITY – Five mobile bus clinics were deployed at terminals, boundaries, and vicinity of malls by the city government here for the Ronda Bakuna booster shots of Angeleños and non-residents from March 10 to 12, 2022.

Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr. said this is in line with the national government’s three-day National Vaccination Drive.

Aside from the mobile bus clinics, a 400-strong vaccination team led by Chief Adviser IC Calaguas, also the chief implementer of the city government’s vaccination program, is always on standby.

Mayor Lazatin said the deployment of the bus clinics and the availability of the vaccination team is to assist neighboring towns and cities in their vaccination program, in a bid towards herd immunity.

The city will accommodate all Angeleños and non-residents who have been fully vaccinated until December 10, 2021. 

When it comes to supplies, City Health Officer Dr. Verona Guevarra said the National Vaccination Operation Center is continuously delivering vaccines to the city. 

Also manning the ground as commanders are City Social Welfare and Development Officer Edna Duaso and Angeles City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Officer-in-Charge Rodolfo Simeon.

Aside from this initiative, the mega vaccination sites at the City College of Angeles and Angeles City National High School are operational especially for the unvaccinated and those for second dose. 

To date, 370,085 Angeleños already received their first dose of vaccines; 337,423 are fully vaccinated; and 64,318 got their booster shots.
