It’s unfortunate fact that our country has experienced a shortage of COVID-19 vaccines which was initially started to inoculate A1 to A3 priority sector which include the frontline health workers, senior citizens, indigent population, and uniformed personnel. In the case of Antipolo City, their Local Government Unit (LGU) has temporarily halted the inoculation program because they’re unable to procure sufficient supply of COVID-19 vaccines from other countries or manufacturers.

To avoid getting caught up in the queue for the next batch of COVID-19 vaccines, the city government has urged its residents to pre-register for vaccination via online or at several on-site registration venues. The pre-registration is open for ages 18 years old and above and their online registration portal can be assessed thru this link:

As of the moment, the city government of Antipolo is planning to replenish its COVID-19 vaccine supply very soon, but could not confirm if it will be able to meet their target date this month. This caused a great distress among the city residents who have been keenly watching and waiting for their chance to get inoculated against COVID-19.

The city government has also announced that for those who have pre-registered but have not received a text message about the program should wait for the confirmation message which will come from the Vaccine Operations Center (VOC). The confirmation message from VOC should contain pertinent details such as personal data, including exact vaccination schedule.

Residents of Antipolo City who need help during the registration process are advised to go to the help desks situated in the vaccination centers in SM City Masinag, SM Cherry, Robinsons Place Antipolo, iMall Antipolo. The barangay offices and four public hospitals in the city are also open to accommodate concerns about COVID-19 vaccination. Alternatively, the Vaccine Operation Center can be contacted through their official Facebook page for concerns related to the vaccination program of Antipolo city such as matters regarding pre-registration.
