The city government is bringing the vaccination program not only to the barangays but also to workplaces through the mobile vaccination.

Work area administrators and business establishment owners in the city are requested to inform the Baguio City Health Services Office of their available schedule, venue, and number of employees eligible for vaccination.    

According to Assistant City Health Services Officer Celia Flor Brillantes, screeners and vaccinators with enough supply of vaccines shall be deployed to venues, as soon as schedules are arranged.

This is part of the innovative moves of the CHSO to get all of the city’s 281,000 eligible population vaccinated. Employees who could not get out of the workplace within working hours are scheduled to be jabbed in their respective areas, therefore eliminating unnecessary local travel, lining up, and jostling at other sites.

Vaccinees should register at bakuna.baguio.gov.ph and present other documents, such as senior citizen card, medical clearance for those with co-morbidities, certificate of employment, valid identification card, or original barangay/residence certificate issued within six months with official’s signature.          

Brillantes made the pronouncement during a press conference on Oct. 6.

She implored for everybody to get vaccinated for their protection. “Para po hindi tayo habulin ng Covid-19 infection,” she said.

Mayor Benjamin Magalong earlier assured there is ample stock of vaccines for all. 

For this weekend, Philippine Export Zone Authority employees and their families numbering to more than 13,000 shall be catered a per request.  

“We are not giving up on the fight against Covid, we work and move on,” Brillantes ended. – Julie G. Fianza
