Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte urged residents to schedule an appointment to receive COVID-19 booster shots amid the threat of the highly transmissible Omicron variant.

In a statement, Belmonte said the city government is planning ahead to curb the rise of COVID-19 cases in Quezon City.

She said the city government has enough supply of AstraZeneca vaccines for boosters after the city immediately procured 1.1 million doses back in 2020.

“We have a lot of vaccine doses which can boost the immunity of our constituents. We urge all QCitizens and the rest of the Filipino population to include booster shots in their list of new year’s resolutions. Our vaccination sites are continuously operating to administer shots for everyone,” Belmonte said. “We also intend to intensify vaccination this month by adding more sites and teams.”

Individuals who had received their second doses (Moderna, Sinovac, Pfizer, Gamaleya, AstraZeneca) at least three months ago or two months for those who got Janssen may register for booster shots at the QC Vax Easy portal (www.ace They are urged to monitor the city’s official Facebook page for updates.
