Isko Moreno eyes Dolomite Beach as COVID-19 vax site
Manila Mayor Isko Moreno is considering using the dolomite beach along Roxas Boulevard as a COVID-19 vaccination site to encourage more people to get the jab.
Moreno, however, said on Wednesday, January 19, that construction in the area should already be finished before people flock to it as a vaccination site.
“Pansinin nyo, kapag pumipili tayo ng lugar, secluded halos lagi ‘yung mga lugar. Geographically feasible sa gagawing function doon sa particular na action plan, Pero okay ‘yun, bakunahan sa dolomite,” he said during the opening of the Manila Zoological and Botanical Garden as the latest vaccination site for minors and senior citizens.
The city government of Manila has opened several vaccination sites for both residents and non-residents. These include the drive-through facilities at Quirino Grandstand and the Bagong Ospital ng Maynila.
Moreno said unvaccinated individuals can visit any of the vaccination sites in Manila.
“Maraming choices yung ating mga kababayan sa lungsod. They can choose kung saan sila kumbinyente. Kung sino pa ba yung mga hindi bakunado, and maybe, some of our workers, because they don’t live in Manila, they go in and out of Manila, so we wanted to protect them. We wanted to protect ourselves while protecting them. So, it works both ways,” he said.
