Davao City LGU asks Dabawenyos to register for Covid-19 vaccination program


The Davao City government has urged the Dabawenyos to sign up for the local government’s Covid-19 vaccination program.

“We encourage everyone to register, provide their data to their nearest health center, barangay health worker or barangay nutrition scholars so that their names will be included in the masterlist,” said Dr. Josephine Villafuerte, head of the Davao City’s Covid-19 Vaccination Program.

However, according to Villafuerte, only those 18 years old and up are qualified to register while pregnant women are not permitted to take the vaccine.

Under the Davao City’s plan, frontliners, indigents, senior citizens and uniformed personnel will still be prioritized to get the vaccine as classified by the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases.

Villafuerte said that each vaccination team will only accommodate 100 clients per day following the intensive vaccination process.

She said each vaccination process would take about 45 minutes including registration, counseling, screening, vaccination and post vaccination.

The official also said that individuals receiving vaccines should follow their schedule for vaccination.

Around 1.2 million Dabawenyos are targeted to be vaccinated under Davao City’s Covid-19 vaccination program.
