  • LOOK: Manila, Taguig offer Free Swab Tests, Here’s How to Avail
  • In the recent report of the Department of Health (DOH), there are 5.5 million Filipinos who have been vaccinated. With the continuous effort of the public and private sectors to jab at least 70% of the Philippines population, the journey still remains an uphill battle.

    While the fight goes on through vax programs, COVID-19 testing plays an important role as a defense to prevent the spread of the virus, although not everyone can afford it. Hence, testing for COVID-19 is listed on the bottom of their priority list. Fortunately, Manila and Taguig have made an initiative to make it free and accessible to who are in dire need of swab tests.

    Taguig City released the list of hospitals where citizens can take a PCR Swab test.

    According to their official Facebook page, The City Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance Unit (CEDSU) and Barangay Health Centers are conducting free PCR testing from Monday to Friday.

    Alongside the given schedule, regular drive-thru testing is available every Wednesday at BGC and every Friday at Lakeshore. Taguig has also launched Park ‘N Test which will be accessible every Monday at the Vista Mall Parking Building. In addition, citizens also can be tested through the Mobile Testing Truck that makes its rounds in the city.
