Para swak sa standards: Abby Binay requires registration of privately-run vax sites


Private companies setting up COVID-19 vaccination sites for their employees are required to register with the Makati local government to ensure these facilities meet the standards set by the Department of Health (DOH), Mayor Abby Binay said.

Binay recently signed City Ordinance No. 2021-094 providing for guidelines for the registration and standardization of privately-run vaccination sites.

“We anticipate the private sector to put up their own vaccination sites for employees with the imminent arrival of vaccines they purchased. As early as now, we have laid down the guidelines to make sure that these facilities will meet the standards set by the national government,” she said.

Under the ordinance, private entities who wish to apply for their vaccination site registration must submit the requirements to the Office of the City Administrator together with their contact information.

The Makati COVID-19 Vaccination Site Quality Assurance Team will then review the submitted documents and recommend the approval of the application, or present its findings and request for other requirements from the applicant.

Relevant provisions of the ordinance will be posted on the city’s Facebook account, My Makati.
