The Philippine Navy on Friday (Feb. 26) has offered the Manila City government added support for the COVID-19 mass vaccination rollout, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso met with Col. Ivan Papera – OIC of the Joint Task Force-National Capital Region (JTF-NCR) and Commanding Officer of the Naval Task Group, Capt. Julius Valdez, PN, Lt. Col. Ramil Holgado, PN, and Ens. Jerick Naval, PN at the Manila city hall on Friday (Feb. 26).

“Malaking bagay especially [sa] security ng bakuna, kasi yung transport from our storage facility sa Sta. Ana (It is a big deal especially the security of the vaccine because of the transport from our storage facility in Sta. Ana),” Domagoso said.

The local chief executive welcomed the added security offered by the Philippine Navy during the vaccination process as this will help the safe transportation of vaccines from the storage facility at the Sta. Ana Hospital to the designated vaccination sites all over the city.

The vaccination sites could vary from 18 to 27 depending on the number of vaccines.

Col. Papera also proposed a joint simulation exercise with Manila’s Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (MDRRMO) in preparation for “The Big One” and other possible disasters.

According to Col. Papera, the worst-case scenario when “The Big One” happens, many structures would have already collapsed and the only option would be to set up the command post in the water.
