ANGELES CITY – Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr. said that the city will join the four-day national vaccination day on February 14 to 17, 2022 to inoculate unvaccinated Angeleños and non-residents in a bid towards herd immunity.
Mayor Lazatin shared that the vaccination site at the City College of Angeles will accommodate all walk-in residents and non-residents for first dose and second dose inoculation.
“Ginagawa po natin ito para sa goal po ng siyudad na mabakunahan ang lahat ng residente nito. At the same time, we could help neighboring towns and cities in their vaccination drive,” Lazatin said.
The city government, with its 400-strong vaccination team led by Chief Adviser IC Calaguas, also the chief implementer of the city government’s vaccination program, is confident that it is ready and equipped for the national vaccination days.
“Nakikiisa po tayo sa hangarin ng national government tungo herd immunity,” Lazatin added.
City Health Officer Dr. Verona Guevarra, who is manning the medical side of the vaccination program, reiterated that the city government is continuously receiving enough supplies of vaccines from the National Vaccination Operation Center.
“May mga naka-schedule rin pong mabakunahan ng second dose na mga kababayan natin during those days, enough po ang supplies natin dahil tuloy-tuloy pong nakakatanggap ang siyudad ng supply ng bakuna mula sa NVOC,” Guevarra explained.
To date, 356,430 Angeleños already received their first dose of vaccines; 331,882 are fully vaccinated; and 52,325 got their booster shots.
