San Jose del Monte City—The city continued Friday to roll out its COVID-19 vaccination for health workers, senior citizens, and persons with comorbidities at SM City San Jose del Monte.
SM City San Jose del Monte utilized its spacious hallway on its second level to serve as one of the city’s vaccination sites.
To make the procedure seamless, the mall management identified areas for each step of the vaccination process and dispatched additional safety officers and sanitation team to ensure health and safety protocols are being observed.
The city health office is targeting 400 individuals from A1 to A3 priority group to get vaccinated per day with the initial dose of Astra Zeneca, but according to Nurse Sionilyn Abargos, most of the frontline health workers in the city are done with their shots. Most of the recipients now are senior citizens and persons with comorbidities, she said.
Each recipient underwent screening and consultation before the vaccine administration and then were observed for 30 minutes. Emergency response teams from both the LGU and SM were also on standby during the inoculation process.
The next vaccination at SM City San Jose del Monte will be on May 17 and 18 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
SM management is closely coordinating with the city health office of San Jose del Monte as it rolls out the vaccination program to help speed up the administration of COVID-19 vaccines and curb the spread of the virus in the city.
