Recognizing that many workers in the city cannot take off work or don’t have time to visit a vaccination site during the day, the Quezon City government has launched a vaccination program that opens at 6 p.m. or after working hours.
Dubbed as ‘QC Bakuna Nights’, the program aims to expand the reach of the city and immunize workers whose only free time is in the evening.
“Para ito sa mga manggagawa natin na hindi naman makaliban sa kanilang trabaho para makapagpabakuna sa karaniwang oras na 8am-5pm. Lalo na ‘yung mga arawan ang sahod.”
“Ngayon, hindi na nila kailangang mamili kung arawang kita ba muna o bakuna. We will inoculate them at a time most convenient to them,” said Mayor Joy Belmonte.
Today, for the first time, around 2,000 pre-registered frontline personnels in essential sectors or those belonging in the A4 priority group will be inoculated at the Quezon City Hall Grounds.
