Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte lauded the city’s medical frontliners for improving the processes in vaccination sites.

Belmonte said residents can be vaccinated in less than an hour as the process has been streamlined.

“We are listening to our people. From the first rollout in March, we are continuously developing ways to improve the processes based on their suggestions. Feedback is important in this program since it is our people who are directly involved in the process,” she said.

Quezon City posted a record-high of 27,000 administered doses yesterday as medical workers and staff at vaccination centers implemented a seamless, no waiting time policy in inoculating priority sectors.

In total, the city had administered 540,850 doses as of June 18, 414,850 of which received their first dose or 24.4 % of QC’s target population of 1.7 million while 126,000 or 7.41 % of its target population was now fully vaccinated.

“Our goal is to vaccinate individuals and open more sites as soon as possible as long as we have a steady supply of vaccines. With less time spent in the vaccination sites, we can accommodate more individuals while still practicing minimum health protocols,” Belmonte added.
