Taguig City eyes to open 2 more 24/7 vaccination centers




PARAnAQUE CITY, Feb. 27 (PIA) -- The Taguig City Government is eyeing to open two more 24-hour vaccination hubs to beef up its response and curb cases of COVID-19.

Aside from an estimated 40 community vaccination centers, the Taguig is eyeing 2 more venues as 24-hour vaccination hubs: one in BGC in Barangay Fort Bonifacio and another near Vista Mall in Barangay Calzada-Tipas. The addition of these facilities would further expand the local government’s reach once the roll-out of its comprehensive vaccination plan commences.

Together with the Lakeshore Vaccine Training and Information Center, which the national government hailed as a "model" facility, the three hubs which are capable of 24-hour operations will be part of a lineup of 40 vaccine centers across Taguig.

The target of the City is to be able to establish 200 vaccination teams to vaccinate 630,000 Taguigenos in 60-90 days.

The 24-hour vaccination hubs will not only be more convenient but will also allow a faster turnaround. These vaccination hubs are also strategically positioned in Taguig and are easily accessible to residents.

"Our target here is not only speed but safety, efficiency and accessibility. Our 24-hour hubs and our community vaccine centers will help us hit our objectives, This will open the opportunity for more citizens to get vaccinated and not have them worry about time," said Mayor Lino Cayetano. (PIA NCR)
