Davao City opens hotline numbers for vaccine-related concerns – official


The Davao City government has dedicated hotline numbers where Dabawenyos can call or send messages on vaccine-related questions and concerns, an official said.

Dr. Josephine Villafuerte, the Head of the Davao City’s Vaccination Cluster, said the residents can call or send messages to 0961 073 4965 for Smart, and 0927 022 9087 for Globe.

These numbers, which were initially used as hotline numbers for those experiencing Adverse Effects Following Immunization (AEFI), are now available for Dabawenyos 24/7, she said.

“This hotline is for all who have questions and concerns regarding vaccination registration, but most especially to Dabawenyo senior citizens who are next in the priority list of vaccinees,” said Villafuerte.

Given the risks for seniors and other vulnerable persons, the official said it was decided to utilize the hotlines so that those who will register for vaccination will know what to do and where to go.
