Quezon City is now capable of vaccinating an average of 7,000 of its resident per day for the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19), and has already inoculated 158,293 as of May 14.

The local government said it has established more vaccination sites with the private sector, the latest of which was the opening of the Smart Araneta Coliseum mega hub on Saturday.

Currently, the city has 35 vaccination sites in six districts, from the original 24 venues when it first laid out its vaccination program.

“Our vaccination drive is in full swing. With a continuing effort to establish more inoculation sites and given a steady supply of vaccines, we are now averaging more than 7,095 individuals inoculated every day,” Mayor Joy Belmonte said.

In a Facebook post on Monday, the city government reiterated registration must be made first, followed by an appointment. No walk-ins will be entertained.

“To ensure orderly enforcement of the minimum public health and safety protocols, we do not allow walk-in in our vaccination centers,” the Facebook post read.

For Tuesday, village-assisted booking schedules are available on the official Facebook account of the Quezon City government.

An individual who has booked an appointment must bring a valid identification card or proof of residency or employment and the confirmed schedule.

Those who booked through eZConsult must bring the email confirmation schedule or screenshot with the QR (quick response) code and/or patient ID number.

The public is also reminded that arriving ahead of the scheduled time does not guarantee that they will be accommodated first.

As of May 16, Quezon City is still dealing with 4,984 Covid-19 cases, or 5.5 percent of the total 90,522 infections since March 2020.
