MANILA, Philippines — Manila Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso announced on Thursday, January 13, that the ongoing booster shot drive-thru vaccination at the Quirino Grandstand has been extended to 24 hours.
Domagoso made the announcement following the high demand of 4-wheel vehicle owners at the said vaccination site.
"Due to the increase of demand ng ating booster vaccination caravan drive-thru in luneta, nakita po natin na talagang dumagsa ibig sabihin gustong gusto ng tao na mabakunahan, pinapalapit natin sa tao ang bakunahan," Domagoso said.
(We've seen that a lot of people are trooping to the place to have themselves vaccinated, we are making the vaccination closer to people.)
"Para maagap kayong madagdagan ng proteksyon, we decided tomorrow, mamaya po yun madaling araw, simula 12 a.m., ang booster vaccination drive-thru caravan sa City of Manila will be made available 24hrs," he added.
(So that many of you will have extra protection, we have decided to make this drive-thru booster shot vaccination in the city of Manila 24 hours.)
Following the extension, Domagoso said the there will be no limit on the number of capacity of vehicles that the city governnment will cater in Luneta.
According to the mayor, the booster shot drive-thru vaccination is still open to the general public, even to those non-Manilenos.
"Itutuloy natin, papalawakin natin, pahahabain natin, gagawin nating unli hangga't may bakuna," Domagoso said.
"Ang goal namin sa Manila, mabuhay ang tao. Iyong impeksyon kumalat na eh, so instead of spending more money in fighting the infection, na huwag kumalat, I would rather utilize most of our resources, gagamitin ko yung kakayanan ng pamahalaan para mabuhay yung taong infected," Domagoso said.
(The goal here in Manila is to make people survive [this pandemic]. The infection has worsened so instead of spending more money in fighting the infection, I would rather utilize most of our resources, the capability of our local government to help the infected people survive.)
Domagoso further assured the public that the city government will continue to strengthen its efforts in mitigating the effect of COVID-19.
"Darating rin at sisikat rin ang araw sa buhay ng tao. Habang nangangapa pa ang tao sa dilim, andito ang pamahalaan nakaalalay," he said.
(There will come a time that the sun will shine for our people. So while we are still grappling our way out of the dark, we in the government will extend assistance.)
