Navotas Mayor Toby Tiangco reiterated his reminder to residents to register for the NavoBakuna COVID-19 vaccination program as the inoculation of medical workers continue.

Residents can register to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at http://covax.navotas.gov.ph/

“Register your family now, especially the elderly members of your household. Ensure that all of you will get the COVID-19 vaccine. No registration means you will not be able to avail of the free vaccine,” he said.

As of March 19, 459 health workers in Navotas have already been vaccinated. Another 400 will be inoculated next week.

“The fast and steady increase of COVID cases underscores the urgent need to vaccinate our frontliners and our most vulnerable groups such as our seniors immediately. We want them to be protected and safe from the threat of the deadly virus,” Tiangco said.

The mayor said that while waiting for the vaccine for residents to arrive, residents should continue observing health protocols like wearing face masks, physical distancing and washing hands regularly.
