Makati to open drive-thru vaccination site 

account_balanceMakati chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

Makati Mayor Abby Binay today announced that the city is opening its drive-thru vaccination site on Friday to accommodate persons with disabilities (PWD) and bedridden residents.

The mayor said the city government has teamed up with Ayala Malls Circuit to establish the first on-the-go vaccination site in the metropolis at the Circuit Makati Estates grounds.

“In response to numerous requests from persons with disabilities and families with a bedridden member, we have come up with this initiative. We understand the predicament of those who have no means of transportation or are physically unable to go through regular procedure,” Mayor Abby said.

The mayor also thanked Ayala Malls Circuit for its willingness to contribute to the city’s efforts to promote a more inclusive vaccination program in order to develop herd immunity.

Some 100 bedridden patients and PWD are expected to be vaccinated during the dry run of the drive-thru vaccination on Friday. They have already pre-registered through and received their confirmation. They were clustered for vaccination at Circuit on the same day for their comfort and convenience.

Individuals who do not have their own vehicles will be provided with one. Mayor Abby also said that she made sure there are enough marshals and guides at the vaccination site to assist and monitor the flow of vehicles.

As with the regular vaccination procedure, patients will undergo counseling and screening. Their information will also be verified prior to receiving the vaccine and patients will also be monitored by medical experts for at least 30 minutes to one hour after receiving the jab.

The main difference is that the patient does not need to alight from the vehicle in consideration of his or her medical condition or disability.

Makati City rolled out its vaccination program in March this year, using vaccines supplied by the national government. As of the end of April, it has vaccinated more than 35,000 medical front liners, essential workers, senior citizens, as well as individuals with comorbidities.

Mayor Abby said the city is expecting vaccines ordered by the city government to be delivered around July. It will provide free vaccination for residents, business and property owners, and non-resident employees.
