To further improve access to vaccination against Covid-19 for its residents and workers, the Quezon City government operates around 140 sites throughout the city’s six districts on a daily basis.
“We are expanding and intensifying our vaccination program to accommodate the city’s eligible population, estimated at 2.8 million residents, including 5-11 year old children. This figure does not include the thousands of non-resident workers who also get their shots in the city”, Mayor Joy Belmonte said.
These sites are comprised of health centers, malls, schools, community venues, churches and special venues such as the Smart Araneta Coliseum and the Quezon Memorial Circle. The city also conducts vaccinations inside subdivisions and private work spaces, government agencies, care homes, and other closed institutions. Home vaccinations for bedridden and differently-abled populations continue to be conducted, as are drive-thru jabs in several mall parking lots. Most recently, pharmacy-based inoculations have begun in coordination with the Department of Health.
“Individuals and families interested to be vaccinated are advised to check the schedules and venues posted on the Quezon City Government’s Facebook page.
Thanks to our healthcare workers, local government employees, barangay officials, and volunteers, we are able to mount large vaccination roll-outs every day,” QC Vax to Normal Action Officer Dr. Maria Lourdes Eleria said.
Vaccination sites located in malls such as SM North Edsa Skydome, Trinoma Mall, Ayala Fairview Terraces, SM Novaliches, Robinsons Magnolia, among others, accept a limited number of walk-ins who must claim a stub and return for their shots at the time indicated on the stub. Other sites also welcome walk-ins when the supply at each site exceeds the doses needed by the number of registered vaccinees, and the same system applies as in mall sites.
Individuals may register to be vaccinated through the QC VaxEasy Portal www.qceservices.quezoncity.gov.ph/qcvaxeasy. The city government posts the schedule and the vaccination sites on their official website (www.quezoncity.gov.ph) and official Facebook page (Quezon City Government). QCitizens may also register at their respective barangays in order to book their vaccination schedules. Limited walk-in slots are also available in mall vaccination sites.
