Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte has partnered with the Tulfo brothers’ ACT-CIS party-list, to increase manpower at COVID-19 vaccination sites.

The party-list has committed to provide medical teams for the vaccination under the “Bayanihan sa Turukan” agreement with the local government.

“Since last year, we have received a myriad of support from different organizations and have established the whole-of-city approach in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. The doctors and nurses from ACT-CIS will greatly support four of our sites, and accommodate more QCitizens in the process,” Belmonte said.

“Ito po ay aming kontribusyon sa hangarin ng ating pamahalaan na mabakunahan ang lahat sa lalong madaling panahon. Kailangan po tayong magtulong-tulong. Hindi natin matatalo ang virus kung hindi natin susuportahan ang mga ginagawang hakbang ng pamahalaan,” ACT-CIS chairman Erwin Tulfo said.

As of May 19, the city government has administered a total of 272,046 doses to QC residents and workers, or 204,394 for the first dose plus 67, 652 for the second dose.
