“Every vaccine we administer is a life we save. So we made full use of our registration processes – barangay-assisted, QCVaxEasy Portal, company-assisted, homeowners’ associations, and bakuna nights to reach our target beneficiaries and vaccinate them during the ECQ when we were given additional supply of vaccines,” Mayor Joy Belmonte said in a statement.

As of Saturday, the local government had administered over 2.1 million vaccine doses.

Quezon City aims to reach population protection by vaccinating at least 80 percent of its adult population.

Belmonte assured the public that once the local government has achieved population protection, the vaccination program would continue for as long as there are eligible residents and workers wanting to get inoculated.
