The Las Piñas City government will begin giving second booster shots to senior citizens and health workers on Monday, May 23.

Las Piñas Vice Mayor April Aguilar met with doctors of the city health office to discuss the preparations for the event, and said information about the second booster doses should be disseminated and explained to assuage any concerns the public may have.

Aguilar also sought the reopening of several community vaccination sites for the administration of the second booster shot.

These sites are the Verdant Covered Court, Golden Acres Covered Court, Almanza Uno Covered Court, San Antonio Covered Court, Bambusetum Covered Court, Gatchalian Covered Court and T.S Cruz Covered Court.

The city government has also started preparations for the Chikiting BakuNation, or the vaccination of children 0 to 23 months old against several diseases.

It will be held from May 30 to June 10 in Metro Manila.

Health personnel will do the vaccination house to house.

“Hinihikayat ng pamahalaang lokal ang lahat na makiisa sa mga programang pangkalusugan ng lungsod na siyang makakapagdagdag kaligtasan at iwas sa mga sakit na maaaring kumalat sa panahong ito,” the Las Piñas City government said in a statement.
