San Simon mayor targets 42K town residents for vaccination
To reach herd immunity, the San Simon municipal government is targeting to vaccinate about 42,000 people or 70 percent of its population, according to San Simon acting Mayor Leonora Wong.
In a statement, the acting mayor said the town has built a new isolation facility, and constantly disinfects areas with reported Covid-19 cases.
Wong also sought a safe and convenient vaccination process for San Simon residents through the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) Vaccination Administration System or DVAS.
The DVAS provides a streamlined system with paperless procedures for registration, screening, vaccination, and monitoring.
As digitizing the process makes it contactless, DVAS allows residents to sign up for vaccination from their own homes.
“San Simon has become one of the earliest municipalities to implement the DVAS in Pampanga. As we work towards achieving a safer community, we hope this newly implemented process encourages more Simonians to get vaccinated,” said Wong.
Since she took over the office in July, Wong said the number of vaccinated people in San Simon “has more than doubled.”
“As of the end of August, San Simon has been able to roll-out vaccinations amounting to over 9,400 total doses administered, resulting in a total of over 4,200 people now fully vaccinated,” she said.
