The Las Pinas City government recently launched the “Bayanihan sa Bakunahan sa Las Piñas” to ensure that all residents will receive their vaccines against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

Mayor Aguilar said 21 vaccination teams, with each team composed of four to five members and will be led by City Health Office (CHO) chief Dr. Juliana Gonzales who will act the overall head, will be dispatched in the different barangays in the city for the inoculation of COVID-19 vaccines to the residents.
The city chief executive said the vaccination teams deployed in the different barangays will also be distributing paracetamol and Vitamin C to those individuals who will receive their COVID-19 jabs.
According to Mayor Aguilar, 20 fixed posts will be set up in every barangay in the city in order for the residents to have an easy visit for their inoculation and the administering of booster shots.
Aside from the setting up of 20 fixed posts in the different barangays, Mayor Aguilar said there will be a team who will conduct house-to-house vaccination that will render their services to senior citizens and persons with disabilities (PWDs).
The mayor also advised residents with comorbidities to visit the vaccination sites identified by the city government for proper monitoring of the patients.
