Registered as a senior citizen in my barangay

It's good to see that you are now registered.I think we (both seniors living in Consolacion) had a better outcome with little to do as sometime last year we were requested to fill up a form from the LGU requesting information on how many persons living in our household and Nationality.(a sort of census), which may or may not have been covide related,,I don't know?.We in fact did NOTHING ,the LGU  and Nurse approached US...(telling us our vaccination date and time). So although you have now registered I'm encouraging other Seniors to make themselves known to "whoever", It MIGHT help.

Got my first sinovac shot yesterday, city sponored done at a local school as a walk in.  Another school down the road was by appointment only.  3 hours of form filling and waiting.  Lines to pick up f

Only problem is that after a few hours, you still want another vaccine.  Aren

Update for Consolacion. I had previously registered with my Barangay health center and was told they would call when they had a schedule for Lamac, my Barangay. No issue about being a foreigner. that

That is actually a national census that was delayed because of the pandemic. But as you say it's good to stay in touch with the Barangay so they know you are an upstanding citizen...unless you're not!

Yes, this is the time to be proactive.  The so-called "list" is only as good as whoever made it. I'm sure there are instances where foreigners were left off due to misunderstanding by the list maker or the list was never comprehensive to begin with. Leadership at the Bgy level varies greatly. I was not on the list until my wife checked with the municipal health office and she fixed that. The final list is at the municipal level not Bgy, but you should start at the bgy.

Update for Consolacion. I had previously registered with my Barangay health center and was told they would call when they had a schedule for Lamac, my Barangay. No issue about being a foreigner. that was two weeks ago, after calling this week to follow up was told there was no schedule for Lamac yet. Then saw on FB that SM malls was teeming up with the local LGUs to administer vaccines and Consolacion was doing same, no further details of course.

Went to the mall yesterday to investigate, saw the area by the Cinemas but it was  closed. went to the mall office to inquire and the guard said Tuesdays and Thursdays where the days the center was open. Decided to continue my quest and this AM at 10 sharp went to the mall to see what was up and if I could possibly get vaccinated. Upon inquiring, was told today was not Lamacs schedule and there was no schedule for Lamac yet, so it is indeed being done by barangay by appointment and pre registration, however the person I spoke with said I could put my name on an alternate list and if they had no shows They would call me, put my name on a list went home, and an hour later got a call to come right away and I could get vaccinated I did, and did. and even got the optional but obligatory official selfie. Total time at center was 1 hour and 10 minutes including a 30 minute observation period at the end. word to the wise, ask ask ask, but you all know the routine.

A while ago, there was a news article stating that people could sign up for an appointment to get the Moderna vaccine from the Red Cross in June or July.

The two doses of the Moderna vaccine are estimated at P4,000. This means that one has to pay P8,000 to get it.
For those interested in making a reservation, please email [email protected] or call 1158.

Has anyone contacted them and gotten a response? Are there any other legitimate sources that have vaccines for purchase?

So the way I understand it for 6480 PHP you ill receive 1st and 2nd dose and a beneficiary that the Red Cross chooses will receive the same. So you are not only helping yourself but others.

Also they intend to set up shop in 100 locations outside Manila.

Update...

There are no more slots available at this time. "out of stock sair"

That would make it a 2 for 1 deal which isn't the intent.

Barangay people  came to my home on Sunday asking if i like to register for vaccination here in barangay.  I responded that I prefer to wait a month or two, because i knew they would  be giving Sinovac (but I didn't tell them why)..  and I prefer Pfizer or Moderna even it there is a cost.  THEN I read here about Red Cross offering Moderna..  when they have stock again that's the path I'll try to take

PCG to the rescue as vaccines sink in Quezon waters

image.png.6bed60a195db2aa275eef0384cc4b551.png

 

MANILA, Philippines — Two boxes containing more than 1,600 doses of COVID-19 vaccines went underwater in Quezon province on Thursday after the boat carrying them for delivery to two towns capsized after hitting a partly submerged concrete column some 100 meters from the coast, the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) reported yesterday.

In a Viber message to reporters, the PCG said the service boat of the Department of Agriculture (DA) was carrying Sinovac vaccines for the towns of Polillo and Burdeos when it met an accident near the coast of Barangay Ungos, Real, Quezon at around 8 a.m. No one was reported hurt in the incident.

Aside from its two crew, the boat was carrying two Department of Health (DOH) personnel and two officers of the Municipal Police Station (MPS) in Polillo.

“Upon settling down, the two DOH personnel made proper coordination with their respective unit to check the condition of the COVID-19 vaccines and conduct appropriate measures,” the PCG said. The boxes containing the vaccines were found to be generally intact and their contents undamaged, according to the PCG.

This was confirmed by Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire when sought for reaction to the incident at a briefing.

“There was an investigation and apparently, the vaccines were placed in double plastic so they remained intact,” she pointed out.

The PCG said they were able to deliver 720 doses of the vaccines to the municipal health unit (MHU) of Polillo and 920 doses to Burdeos MHU.

Also at the briefing, Vergeire said the country’s “vaccine wastage” is still within the target of less than five percent of the total doses.

She said the country has not exceeded the allowable limit for vaccine wastage which is five percent of the total doses.

The DOH is also looking into reports that more than 300 vials of Sinovac vaccines were left in a freezer without electricity over the weekend in Cotabato City.

The vaccines were in a freezer that was turned off for two days in Makilala town.

Vergeire said the DOH regional office has been directed to investigate and see if anyone should be held liable for the incident.

“To prevent this from happening again, we already advised our local government units – our implementing units – to make sure that there are generators on standby, especially in areas where blackouts are frequent,” she added.

So far, more than 7.7 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines have arrived in the country.
