Valenzuela City is set to complete the inoculation of the initial batch of 5,909 senior citizens by Thursday, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

The second batch will be accommodated April 23 to 30.

To date, the city government has completed the vaccination of healthcare workers.

The city government began inoculating the elderly on April 17 at the Pio Valenzuela Elementary School, Polo National High School, Canumay West Elementary School, and Valenzuela Polytechnic College.

AstraZeneca vaccines were given to the first 850 senior citizens who signed up for the Valenzuela City vaccination (VCVax) program while the rest received the China-made Sinovac jabs.

Vaccination for the A3 group (aged 18 to 59 with comorbidities) is ongoing and is simultaneously conducted with A2 (senior citizens), the city reported.

The city government also has the VCVax Help Center to address residents' jabs concerns.

“In order to lessen the callers of our City Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit (CESU) about vaccination concerns, we opened the VCVax Help Center so the CESU Mega Contact Tracing Center will only be for Covid-19 response and concerns,” Mayor Rex Gatchalian said in a statement.

Residents may contact (02) 8-8222463 or 8-VACCINE 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Mondays to Saturdays or email at

The 24/7 CESU can be reached via hotline number 137-160 for Covid-19-related queries, reports or notification of virus exposure, requests for swab tests, isolation procedures, and other emergencies.

The city strictly implements an appointment system for vaccination.

Covid-related concerns may also be emailed: For swab result certificate,; for swab results from a private hospital or laboratory,; for swab test requests (symptomatic, pregnant, or medical operation) and other inquiries,

As of Monday, Valenzuela still has 1,091 active cases from a total confirmed 15,789 infections. There are also 14,316 recoveries and 382 deaths.
