To make COVID-19 vaccination more accessible to the public, the local government of Quezon City now operates 140 sites where people can get their jabs daily.

These sites include centers, malls, schools, community venues, churches, and special venues such as the Smart Araneta Coliseum and the Quezon Memorial Circle. The city also conducts vaccinations inside subdivisions and private workspaces, government agencies, care homes, and other closed institutions.

“We are expanding and intensifying our vaccination program to accommodate the city’s eligible population, estimated at 2.8 million residents, including 5-11-year-old children. This figure does not include the thousands of non-resident workers who also get their shots in the city”, Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte said.

Vaccination sites located in malls such as SM North Edsa Skydome, Trinoma Mall, Ayala Fairview Terraces, SM Novaliches, Robinsons Magnolia, among others, accept a limited number of walk-ins who must claim a stub and return for their shots at the time indicated on the stub.

Home vaccinations for bedridden and differently-abled populations continue to be conducted, as are drive-thru jabs in several mall parking lots.
