Meanwhile, the vaccination effort is still going strong midway through the week, with 1,364 Taclobanons scheduled to receive their second dose of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine on October 13, 2021, at Robinsons North Abucay.

Furthermore, 206 residents are scheduled to receive their second Sinovac dose on the same day.

Also on October 13, 2021, over 200 workers, largely pedicab drivers, make their way to CEO Gym to finally get their vaccination shot from the city's mobile vaccination team.

After receiving their first dosage of Sinovac shot on September 15, said recipients received their second dose on Wednesday, October 13.

Following the inoculation, the pedicab drivers were given 5-kilo rice, which was made possible by the LGU under Mayor Alfred Romualdez, and Hiraya Foundation, through President Raymund Romualdez who personally led the distribution along with the partner-NGO Rise Against Hunger Philippines (RAHP).

According to Tacloban-CIO, mobile vaccination for those in the marginalized sector aims to provide a convenient way for them to be vaccinated because they may not have the time to travel to designated vaccination sites for their shots. After all, they need to earn a living. —Tacloban News Update/AJ Yes (Source: Tacloban-CIO)
