(SPOT.ph) After the inoculation of healthcare workers, senior citizens, and persons with comorbidities, COVID-19 vaccination for the A4 priority group started in Metro Manila in June. This segment is seen as one of the biggest bulks of the program in the nation's fight against COVID-19 as workers also stand in the frontlines. In an effort to fast-track the vaccination of as many people as possible, Quezon City is offering to hold office-based inoculation for companies registered in the city.

The A4 priority group in the Quezon City vaccination program is classified as:

  • Private employees required to physically report to work
  • Employees in government agencies
  • Workers in the informal sector and self-employed who may be required to work outside of their homes and those working in private households

For companies located in Quezon City with 100 or more employees, you can register as a business through QCProtektodo's website or send an e-mail to qcprotektodo@quezoncity.gov.ph. You just need to have your own medical team, who will be administering the vaccines; and an available venue, which can also be just your office.

The Office of the Vice President, which is located in New Manila, Quezon City, partnered with the QC Task Force Vax to Normal through this process. They were able to inoculate 165 staff members with their second dose on July 14 right at their office. "Conducting office-based vaccinations is a big help. Our staff do not have to line up in vaccination centers anymore, hence, the risk of virus transmission is lessened. People are also less afraid and hesitant because they are with colleagues," Vice President Leni Robredo said in a post. They provided their own team of doctors and nurses, but a team from the local government was there to supervise.
