74% of online registrants in San Simon LGU now fully vaccinated

The San Simon LGU has already fully vaccinated 74 percent of its online registrants.

Around 74% of the more than 11,000 individuals who have registered online had already been fully vaccinated, according to San Simon Acting Mayor Leonora Wong.

Wong said the LGU is committed to provide an efficient vaccination system and financial assistance to Simonians.

Wong revealed the Municipality of San Simon implemented the use of the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) Vaccination Administration System or DVAS to make vaccination processes more efficient.

“San Simon has become one of the earliest municipalities to implement the DVAS in Pampanga. As we work towards achieving a safer community, we hope this newly implemented process encourages more Simonians to get vaccinated,” said Wong.

The number of vaccinated people in San Simon has more than doubled since Wong took over as acting mayor in July. As of the end of August, San Simon has been able to roll-out more than 9,400 doses of vaccines and administered them to more than 4,200 people, who are now fully vaccinated.

This increase in the number of vaccinated people in San Simon is largely due to Wong’s encouragement of vaccination for Simonians, and the development of a centralized vaccination site that has the capacity to vaccinate 600 people per day.

To reach herd immunity, San Simon targets to vaccinate about 41,998 people or 70% of its population.

Wong has also built a new isolation facility, and constantly disinfects areas with reported COVID-19 cases.

Establishing a safe and convenient vaccination process for Simonians, the DVAS provides a streamlined system with paperless procedures for registration, screening, vaccination, and monitoring. DVAS allows Simonians to sign-up from their homes.

The implementation of the DVAS has cut down processing time in half, from 20 minutes to 10 minutes or less. Citizens can also pre-register online to secure a slot for the COVID-19 Vaccination Program on the official San Simon website.

Further strengthening COVID-19 efforts in San Simon, Wong also provides financial assistance to those affected by the pandemic, including medical aid, food allocations, and even burial expenses.

Allowances are also given to displaced laborers due to the pandemic, encouraging small livelihood and supporting the growth of local businesses.

Leading Simonians through an inclusive and effective governance, Wong emphasized that implementing proper systems for COVID-19 efforts is vital to ensure the health and safety of the community, and San Simon’s eventual economic recovery.
