Local governments in the CAMANAVA area announced yesterday that they had also limited COVID-19 vaccination operations yesterday.
There was no schedule yesterday in Caloocan City for the first dose. Therefore, only the second dose of the vaccines was injected.
More than 3,000 residents are scheduled for the first and second doses in the seven vaccination sites in Malabon.
Even Navotas has announced that they will only vaccinate those in A1 to A3 and temporarily stop injecting essential workers due to the limited supply of the vaccine.
In Valenzuela City, the injection will continue at nine COVID-19 vaccination sites, but only for those who will be vaccinated with the second dose.
According to Dra. Beng Cruz, the team leader of their vaccination program, their supply of the second dose of Sinovac, will also be reduced this week.
The LGU also announced on its social media account that while waiting for an additional supply of vaccines, it will not first distribute vaccination appointments for the first dose recipients at all vaccination sites in the city.
CAMANAVA vaccine supply also limited
Meanwhile, the supply of COVID-19 vaccine for the first dose vaccination in Pasig City is also low, and it is expected to last only a few days.
According to Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto, only 11,000 vaccines are left for their first dose of vaccination.
He said he hopes they will be able to use all of them in the coming days.
“Sa ngayon, ang first dose ay nasa 11,000 na lang, after a few days mauubos na rin ito kaya inaasahan natin na makatatangap pa tayo ng karagdagan supply ng bakuna,” Sotto said in a televised public briefing.
“Kulang na po talaga ito kasi ‘yung listahan natin araw araw dumarami ‘yung gustong magpabakuna,” he added.
Sotto said the city has the capacity to administer up to 7,000 doses of the vaccine per day.
So far, he said, they have received more than 250,000 doses of the vaccine, and 75,000 of them have been injected as a second dose.
