Registered people urged to show up for their appointment

The number of persons vaccinated against COVID-19 in San Pedro Town exceeds 700, with more people expected to receive the jab this week. As the rollout moves to phase 2A/B, the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine is now available to police officers and teachers. However, those persons 60+ (Phase 1) who are yet to register are asked to continue doing so through this form Registrants are requested not to miss their appointment as a no-show will result in the vaccine given to someone else, and the absentee will have to re-schedule.

According to Dr. Joshua A. Canul from the Dr. Otto Rodriguez San Pedro Polyclinic II, this is the reason why some people falling under a different phase receive a vaccine when the scheduled recipient does not show up. Dr. Canul says that once a vile of the vaccine is open, it must be administered or go to waste.
