Angeles City launches vaccine rollout, targets 411K residents
Angeles City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr. personally received on Saturday the first batch of AstraZeneca vaccines donated by the Department of Health at the Rafael Lazatin Memorial Medical Center (RLMMC).
The beneficiaries of the donated vaccines are the health workers from the private and public hospitals identified by the DOH, according to the city information office.
“Unti-unti na nating masisimulan ang pag-rollout ng vaccines para sa pagbabakuna ng 411,634 residente ng siyudad,” Lazatin said.
“Uunahin muna natin ang mga health workers at frontliners ng siyudad gaya ng utos ng DOH, pero sisiguraduhin natin na lahat ng mga Angeleños ay mababakunahan at maproproteksyunan laban sa Covid-19,” he added.
Lazatin conducted an inspection of a cold storage facility at the City Hall where the vaccines would be stored.
He was accompanied by chief adviser IC Calaguas, executive assistant Reina Manuel, RLMMC head Dr. Froilan Canlas and Information and Communications Technology Division chief Michael Lising.
According to Calaguas, the working committee for the city’s Covid-19 vaccination is working tirelessly for a smooth rollout of the vaccines.
