Vico Sotto announces closure of some Pasig vax sites

0 160

Vico Sotto regretted announcing the closure of some Pasig vaccination centers just as the city is gaining momentum with the jabs.

The millennial mayor offered both good and bad news for residents on the pace of vaccinations in the city.

“GOOD NEWS: We have hit the quarter-million jab mark! 75K have received their 2nd dose,” the politiko said. “Unfortunately, we will have to close several vaccination sites this week, since we only have ~11K remaining on hand for 1st dose (we can do over 6K jabs per day).”

Why? He explained that Sputnik V vaccines from Russia have not been authorized for use yet, while some jabs are COVAX facility donations and cannot be used on the A4 or essential workers segment.
