The Bacolod City government yesterday opened a drive-thru COVID-19 vaccination site at the 5th-floor parking area of Ayala Malls Capitol Central.
The drive-thru vaccination was supervised by City Administrator Em Ang, Emergency Operations Center – Task Force (EOC-TF) executive director and COVID-19 Vaccination Council coordinator; OIC-City Health Officer Dr. Edwin Miraflor Jr.; and EOC and Deputy for Medical Dr. Chris Sorongon, with the assistance of EOC doctors, nurses, barangay health workers, and the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office.
Pre-registered healthcare workers, senior citizens, and persons with comorbidities will be accommodated at the drive thru vaccination, Ang said.
“Those interested to avail of the drive thru vaccination must bring a screenshot of their online registration, government-issued ID with their Bacolod address, and a pen,” the city administrator added.
For his part, Sorongon said that this latest vaccination strategy “aims to make vaccination more accessible to the public.”
