This Monday, 3 mobile clinics were launched in Quezon City where residents can get vaccinated against COVID-19.
A mobile vaccination clinic was launched for residents who do not know how to use a gadget to book vaccinations online, senior citizens, and persons with disabilities (PWD).
One of the buses has a lifter to lift PWDs.
One of those vaccinated at the mobile clinic was 70 -year -old street sweeper Genoveva Flores.
He was amazed at the clinic and he felt that he was safe especially since there were no crowds and vaccine recipients entered the bus one by one.
“Proteksiyon po. Nagwawalis ako sa kalsada at may sakit na cancer ang kapatid ko,” he said.
Stroke survivor Teodorico Pinero also got vaccinated.
According to Pinero, he has wanted to get an injection for a long time but he does not know where there is a vaccination site.
“Bakuna ang ating pag-asa para makaligtas tayo sa pandemic na ito,” he said.

According to Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte, this includes the establishment of vaccination sites in community centers and elementary schools.
