The Quezon City government is confident that the city will achieve herd immunity in September.
This is what Mayor Joy Belmonte said because the registration of QCs to be vaccinated is continuous. There are no problems due to the launch of the LGU assisted registration portal for their vaccination program.
About 113,000 QCs are expected to be vaccinated in the coming days because the new platform is “smooth sailing”.
Belmonte hopes the vaccine supply will be stable due to the arrival of additional Sinovac and Moderna vaccines.
Thanks to the new platform, the QC government is able to vaccinate up to 35,000 vaccine shots per day.
Quezon City residents may register through the QC Vax Easy by filling in the form at this link: https://qceservices.quezoncity.gov.ph/qcvaxeasy.
Quezon City to achieve herd immunity by September – Mayor Joy
Registrants in this QC Vax Easy system can also be used as a Quick Substitution List if scheduled registrants will not show up on the day of their vaccination.
Existing processes such as the EzConsult and the barangay-assisted booking schemes will still be operational.
As of June 24, 557,132 QC residents have received the first dose of the vaccine and are expected to hit the herd immunity target of 1.7 million by September.
Meanwhile, the National Task Force said the Philippines had vaccinated at least 11 million Filipinos against COVID-19 as of July 2.
“Sa loob lamang po ng apat na araw, mula Lunes hanggang kahapon, one million doses po ang na-i-jab natin. At dahil po diyan, 11 million na po ang ating jabs na na-administer sa ating mga kababayan,” Deputy Chief Implemented Vince Dizon said.
(We were able to administer one million doses in the last four days until yesterday, so we reached the 11 million mark.)
