  • Makati, Private Sectors Tie Up to Expand Vaccination Sites
  • Makati teamed up with private sectors to expand the national COVID-19 vaccination program through additional vaccination sites. 

    Last week, Makati Mayor Abby Binay graced the new vaccination center at the Glorietta 5 Mall. The place can hold up to 500 individuals, which can help to accommodate economic front-liners and government workforce listed under the Department of Health’s prioritization in the vaccination program.

    “We have made these strategic partnerships with the private sector to accommodate the expected influx of vaccine registrants from the A4 category,” Binay said

    The collaboration is in line with the “Bakuna Makati mass vaccination program,” in which the private sector is directed to collaborate with the city government in implementing their vaccination plans.

    “We laud the Ayala Corporation and Megaworld Corporation for readily sharing their resources as we begin another critical phase in the Bakuna Makati mass vaccination program,” Binay added.

    Makati City has allotted 1 billion pesos for the procurement of COVID-19 vaccines, to be given free to all residents and non-residents but working in the city.

    The standardization of vaccination sites and registration protocols for business establishments and commercial centers in Makati will help for the fast distribution of vaccines.

    Meanwhile, another COVID-19 vaccination center has been opened at the San Lorenzo Place Mall last Friday. It targets to accommodate at least 400 individuals belonging to the A4 category.

    As classified by the DOH, the A4 category is subdivided as follows:

    A4.1 – Private sector workers who work outside their homes and overseas Filipino workers scheduled for deployment within four months;

    A4.2 – Employees in government agencies and instrumentalities, including government-owned or controlled corporations (GOCCs) and local government units; and

    A4.3 – Informal sector workers and self-employed who work outside their homes and those working in private households.

    Binay also highlighted that the On-the-Go (Vax OTG) will remain to assist healthcare workers, senior citizens, and persons with comorbidity.
