COVID vaccination continues in Caloocan

THE COVID-19 vaccine rollout for medical and health frontliners of Caloocan City North Medical Center (CCNMC) continued following the arrival of 100 doses of Sinovac vaccines provided by the national government on Thursday.

Mayor Oscar “Oca” Malapitan said out of 243 medical staff, around 100 health workers of the CCNMC agreed to take the shots of the vaccines, either Sinovac or AstraZeneca.

The vaccination rollout at the CCNMC started last Tuesday after the national government through the Department of Health (DOH) delivered the 210 doses of AstraZeneca vaccines.

Latest tally showed that around 50 medical staff of CCNMC already took the shots of the vaccines provided by the national government.

The City Health Office and doctors of CCNMC also started to monitor those who received the shots for possible side effects of the vaccine.

Earlier on March 8, Mayor Oca and Senator Francis Tolentino witnessed the start of the inoculation of Sinovac vaccine for medical and health frontliners at the Caloocan City Medical Center (CCMC).

Mayor Oca expressed his gratitude to the national government for providing the Sinovac and AstraZeneca vaccines for employees of CCMC and CCNMC which was both funded and operated by the Caloocan City Government.
