The city government of Davao will start the Covid-19 inoculation of senior citizens on Tuesday (May 11, 2021). Davao City Health Office (CHO) acting head Dr. Ashley Lopez clarified that this will be a scheduled vaccination activity that will be held at SM Lanang Premier and Matina Aplaya Elementary School and that the list of the vaccinees will be based on the registration from the District Health Centers.
“They will receive advice as to when and where to go. Scheduled ni, dili ni open or for walk-in. Way limit up to 300 maximum per day kay mag-times 2 ang tawo tungod sa chaperons or helpers,” Lopez said. The city is targeting to inoculate 120,000 senior citizens.
Meanwhile, inoculation at SM Lanang Premier starts at 10 a.m. in the cinema hallway.
Based on the mall’s statement, there are about 250 pre-registered/identified senior citizens 60 years old and above (category A2) expected to receive the vaccines. SM works closely with the city to ensure that health protocols are followed during the activity.
SM Supermalls supports the efforts of the government in fighting the Covid-19 pandemic by providing safe spaces for vaccination efforts throughout the country.
Meanwhile, there are two registration methods for vaccination being done by CHO: manual listing or where the residents go directly to their district health offices, and through the Covid-19 vaccination hotlines (0961 073 4965 for Smart users and 0927 022 9087 for Globe users).
