The Department of Health (DOH) said Pasay and Las Piñas cities are posting high COVID-19 vaccine utilization rates, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

As of July 15, the DOH recorded Pasay with 98.20 percent in vaccine utilization rate followed by Las Piñas City with 95.74 percent. 

Las Piñas City Mayor Imelda Aguilar, who was happy to note that Las Piñas ranked as number 2 in the vaccine utilization rate, called on residents to avail the free vaccination being offered by the government to be safe from being infected with the virus.

Aguilar is ensuring all residents that despite the delay of arrival and lack of supply of vaccines, the city government continues to conduct vaccination.

She said the commitment of every city resident to be vaccinated against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) will help the city government to immediately achieve herd immunity.

The mayor said the city government has vaccinated a total of 313,045 residents as of July 16 of which 212,510 received their first dose belonging to A1 to A5 categories. In addition, 100,535 have already been fully vaccinated against the virus. 

In Pasay City, Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano said the city government recorded that as of July 16, a total of 233,951 residents were inoculated.

Rubiano said the city government targets to inoculate 7,500 residents per day but due to lack of vaccines and delay of its arrival, only those who were pre-listed and with scheduled vaccination for the second dose can receive vaccines. 

The Public Information Office posted on Facebook the city government no longer allows walk-ins at vaccination sites and told residents to wait for a text message on their scheduled vaccination.
