PALO, Leyte - The local government unit here is optimistic to speed up its vaccine rollout through the online registration system.
To ensure that residents follow the vaccination schedule, Mayor Anne Petilla said they have to establish an online system that guides residents through the seven online registration processes to secure a schedule in the Palo Quick Vaccination System.
“I encourage everyone to be protected and vaccinated against coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19). You can visit http://palo.gov.ph/qvac/register to register and secure a schedule of your vaccination,” Petilla said in her official Facebook account on Friday.
Through this scheme, launched early this month, the local government is eyeing to inoculate 1,000 doses of vaccines daily, depending on the supply of vaccines available.
“Our online system can do a great help because it speeds up our vaccination process. Other local governments in Leyte are also using the said vaccination system as we continue to work together to achieve herd immunity,” Petilla added.
The local government announced this as it continues the immunization of health workers, senior citizens, and those with comorbidities.
Petilla appreciated the senior citizens who followed the schedule of vaccination for elderlies despite their physical condition.
Among them was 101-year-old Luz Montejo Sevilla, the oldest resident to be inoculated and got her first dose on May 21.
Her granddaughter posted a video of Sevilla's vaccination on social media to encourage more elderly to avail themselves of the free vaccines.
Some 3,929 residents included in the priority list got AstraZeneca and Sinovac vaccines as of May 21, according to the local government.
As of May 23, the town has recorded 1,202 confirmed Covid-19 cases, including 1,108 recoveries, and 20 deaths. (PNA)
