Willing to wait! Vico Sotto: More COVID-19 vaccination hubs set to open but jab doses running low

0 7

The local government of Pasig will open 10 more COVID-19 vaccination sites in the coming weeks to accommodate residents who want to get the jab, Mayor Vico Sotto said Monday, April 26.

In an Instagram story, however, Sotto said it will be prudent for the city government to wait first for the arrival of new vaccine stocks before opening the vaccination hubs.

“IN around 2 weeks, we will use up all vaccines that are on hand. We can open 10 more vaccination sites, but it only makes sense to do this if more vaccines arrive,” he said.

Sotto said The Medical City is already open as a COVID-19 vaccination hub. However, he appealed to the public to schedule their visit to the hospital so it will not be crowded.

“We can help by NOT going to the venue early. Kung anong oras lang yung time window sa text, dun lang po pumunta,” the mayor said.
