To complement its “ever-growing” vaccine program, the Quezon City government has opened a new vaccine registration portal.
Following the recent technical woes of the city’s third-party partner eZconsult, Mayor Joy Belmonte on Friday clarified that this will be an alternative or additional mode to the current registration processes.
“Pending another round of online booking to test eZconsult’s system upgrade, we are offering QC Vax Easy as an option. With this new registration system, we are reducing the difficulty of manually booking your slots. Just register and wait for the city government to contact you for your schedule,” she said.
The QC Vax Easy introduces a first-in, first-out registration, meaning those who have registered and submitted their personal information shall be given a schedule for their inoculation, depending on the availability of vaccine supply.
The city government will prioritize registrants based on their priority group.
Registrants in the QC Vax Easy system can also be used as a quick substitution list in case scheduled registrants would not show up on the day of their vaccination, she noted.
Any existing processes, such as the EzConsult and the barangay-assisted booking schemes, would still be operational.
Same documents, such as proof of residence or employment in the city, would still be submitted upon arrival at the vaccination sites.
According to Belmonte, the QC Vax Easy will be a city-assisted registration system that is intended to augment the current registration processes of the QCProtektodo Vaccination Program.
Registrants only need to fill up the form by accessing the link: https://qceservices.quezoncity.gov.ph/qcvaxeasy.
City Administrator Michael Alimurung said that this would help address the concerns of many QCitizens who are having problems registering for the program.
“In light of the various difficulties that our people are experiencing in the barangay-assisted booking and online booking, this QC Vax Easy portal will aid us in registering QC residents and workers into the vaccination program,” he said.
