According to the spokesperson, there are 500 senior citizens from these areas that will be first catered for the vaccine.

She further said that in Brgy. Doongan can only cater to 200 out of 1,200 seniors. While Brgy. Lemon has over 100 seniors and more than 200 in Brgy. Buhangin. They are expecting to receive the additional vaccines by May 3rd.

Senior citizens are encouraged to rest well and take maintenance medicine before going to the vaccination post.

All safety guidelines including social distancing should be observed during the vaccination.
