The city government has started making a master list of eligible residents and those classified under the phase 1 priority to receive the anti-Covid-19 vaccine last week, in line with the implementation of the National Covid-19 Vaccine Immunization Deployment Program.
The activity was launched in the 14 barangays of Aurora Hill on Feb. 21 at the Bayan Park covered court with more than 7,000 residents targeted to enlist.
Local Civil Registry Administrative Aide III Cris Bulacan said they listed those who are willing to have themselves enlisted. Residents may also indicate in the form if they are willing to be vaccinated or not.
Residents of barangays Fairview, Quezon Hill (Proper, Middle, and Upper) and Victoria Village were also scheduled for master listing on Feb. 25 and 26.
The City Mayor’s Office has also advised public and private hospitals, public and private long-term health care facilities catering to senior citizens, district health centers (DHCs), barangay health workers (BHWs), and barangay health emergency response teams, among others, to assist in the profiling/masterlisting and submit the profile/master list of senior citizens in their respective barangays to their health center data encoders.
Residents who are 59 years old and turning 60 this year were also advised to either pre-register for Covid-19 vaccination by submitting a Google form response by Feb. 28 or be interviewed by BHWs or employees of catering DHCs.
In the advisory, Mayor Benjamin Magalong said the profiling and master list is different from the registration of vaccinees.
“Being profiled and included in a facility’s master list does not guarantee or make it mandatory for one to be vaccinated. It only includes one’s profile for uploading to the pre-master list of the electronic immunization registry in use and subject one’s data validation.
Once validated and deemed eligible to receive the vaccine, the profile is moved to the final master list of vaccinees. During vaccination day, counseling, screening, and signing a consent form prior to receiving the vaccine will be part of the vaccination process,” he said. – Hanna C. Lacsamana
