Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto is calling on parents to have their children aged 12 to 17 years old registered for a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible.

Sotto made the appeal as the local government kicked off the vaccination of teens with comorbidities against the virus.

In a Facebook post, Sotto said 89 minors with comorbidities received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at the Pasig City General Hospital.

“Ang 89 na ito ay mga pasyente ng Children’s Hospital at mga health center natin,” he explained.

Sotto said the registration for COVID-19 vaccination of minors could be done via Pasig Pass.

“Magandang magparehistro na, pero maaaring matagal pa po ang waiting period- depende sa supply ng bakuna at sa guidelines na ibababa sa atin,” he said.
