INDIVIDUALS who are not residents/workers of Davao City are advised to have their vaccination in their respective areas of residence instead of coming to Davao City to be inoculated.

“Ang bawat LGU (local government unit), naay pre-allocated na number of doses para sa ilang general population...Kung ang pangutana muadto sila diri sa Davao para ma-vaccinate, dili siya advisable because ang atong priority is ang residente sa Davao (Each LGU has a pre-allocated number of doses for their general population. It’s not advisable for an individual from other areas to go to Davao City just to get vaccinated because what we prioritize are the residents of the city),” Task Force Covid-19 Davao City spokesperson Michelle Schlosser said Friday, October 1, via the Davao City Disaster Radio 87.5FM.

For Davao City, the vaccine allocation of 1.8 million is primarily for its residents and its workforce.

She clarified that those who work in Davao City but not originally residents of the city are included in the vaccine allocation as they are considered under the sectoral group.

Schlosser urged these residents to ask for assistance from their respective LGUs because they also have their own vaccine allocation as well.

“I hope na hulaton lang ninyo siguro ang roll-out sa inyong LGU kay I’m pretty sure na ang inyong mga LGU naa pud mga lakang as to the roll-out of your own vaccination. (I hope they just wait for the vaccine roll-out of their respective LGU because I’m pretty sure that their LGUs also have their steps to roll-out their vaccines),” added Schlosser.
