COVID-19 mobile vaccination will be stepped up in the National Capital District in the coming weeks, bringing vaccination coverage to city residents doorsteps.
National COVID-19 Pandemic Deputy Controller Dr Daoni Esorom said the COVID-19 National Control Centre will be organizing several buses in the next few weeks for several mobile vaccination teams to move around within the city for business organizations to have their employees vaccinated.
He said this approach is convenient to the working class, who do not have time to visit the static sites to be vaccinated.
“Bank South Pacific has already proposed to us to have a vaccination team visit their branches and we’re expecting other business houses to also reach out to us for this planned mobile vaccination,” Dr Daoni said.
He, however did not clarify if any community mobile vaccination visits will take place apart from the business organizations.
“At the moment, the only two mobile vaccination sites are at Vision City and in the Motu-Koitabu villages,” Dr Daoni said.
Earlier this week Pandemic Controller David Manning called on citizens not be complacent as the dangers of Covid-19 are not over.
He said the only way to be safe against COVID-19 is to get fully vaccinated.
Mr Manning said citizens who received the first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine must ensure they get the second dose.
As of August 5 a total of 21,090 people have received two doses of AstraZeneca vaccine and are fully vaccinated.
