CALOOCAN CITY, April 14 (PIA) -- The Navotas City Government on Monday completed the inoculation of its priority A1 frontliners.

Some 1,297 resident and non-resident frontliners who registered in the city’s Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccination program have received their shots.  Of this number, 178 have been given the second dose.

Navotas will also resume the vaccination of senior citizens following the decision of the Food and Drug Authority (FDA) to allow them to have Sinovac Biotech’s CoronaVac vaccine.

“Amidst the continuous increase in COVID-19 infections and the delay in the delivery of other vaccines, we welcome the decision of the FDA to allow seniors to have the CoronaVac jab,” Mayor Toby Tiangco said.

“It is urgent that we vaccinate all our seniors as soon as we can. They are one of the most vulnerable sectors and they need to be protected immediately from this deadly disease,” Mayor Toby added.

As of April 12, Navotas has also vaccinated 892 seniors and 1,686 persons with comorbidity. (PIA NCR)
