Angeles City joins #VaxAsOne

Angeles City joins #VaxAsOneANGELES CITY – The city government here under the leadership of Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin Jr. will join the whole country in #VaxAsOne, where all Angeleños and non-residents here will be vaccinated from Nov. 29 to December 1, 2021.

Lazatin said that the two mega vaccination sites of the city government at the City College of Angeles and Angeles City National High School can accommodate all walk-in residents and non-residents.

Mayor Lazatin furthered that this initiative of joining the three-day national vaccination day is its contribution towards herd immunity, echoing that the safest way to protect oneself from the virus is to get vaccinated.
“Ang bigger goal po dito ay mabakunahan lahat ng nakatira dito sa siyudad, at matulungan yung mga kababayan natin mula sa mga karatig-lungsod at bayan na hindi pa nababakunahan,” Lazatin said.

“Nakikiisa po ang siyudad ng Angeles sa national government sa paglunsad ng Bayanihan Bakunahan,” Lazatin added.

IC Calaguas, Lazatin’s chief adviser and chief implementer of the city’s vaccination program, also explained that three mobile bus clinics will also be deployed in all city entry point boundaries including cities of Mabalacat and San Fernando and towns of Porac, Mexico, and Magalang.

There are 400 working staff in the vaccination team.

City Health Officer Dr. Verona Guevarra, who is manning the medical side of the vaccination program, said that there is enough supplies of vaccine to inoculate the residents and non-residents.

“May enough supply po tayo ng bakuna. Tuloy-tuloy din po ang suportang natatanggap natin sa National Vaccination Operation Center pagdating sa supply ng bakuna,” Guevarra added.

Aside from this, all doctors and nurses here will also receive their booster shots starting on November 25, 2021.

To date, 295,185 Angeleños already received their first dose of vaccines while 233,373 are fully vaccinated.
