The Quezon City (QC) government has partnered with local businesses in order to promote and carry out, Covid19 vaccinations among employees.
For establishments that have at least 100 people in their workforce, a workable vaccination area, and an available medical team, the QC government is offering company-aided booking for on-site inoculations.
By allowing businesses to conduct vaccinations at their own venues, employees that are unable to take time off work for jabs may now do so at their leisure and convenience.
The tie-up comes as another innovative strategy from the QC government in making vaccination accessible to the essential worker priority category.
“Bakuna Nights” was an initiative from the QC government that made it possible for employees who are only available for vaccination at night, to receive their jabs.
A home vaccination service for bed-ridden residents was also made available in QC, along with buses that sought to provide communities with difficulty getting to jab centers, inoculations closer to them.
However, as the vaccination efforts continue to take flight, a dwindling supply has grounded first dose administration in the meantime.
With supply dependent on the national government, QC will only be able to provide 2nd Covid19 vaccine doses until additional shots are provided.
As of July 6, QC’s tally of fully vaccinated citizens stands at 238,011.
