SUBIC BAY FREEPORT—The Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA), through the Office of the Deputy Administrator (ODA) for Health and Safety, launched recently the Mobile Vaccination Drive as part of the freeport’s efforts to provide the community better access to COVID-19 vaccines,
“This is in accordance with the directive from the Department of Health (DOH) to see to it that
everyone has access to COVID-19 vaccines in our community,” said SBMA OIC-DA for Health and
Safety Ronnie Yambao.
This came after a meeting with the Asst. Regional Director D. Lailani Mangulabnan of the Central
Luzon Center for Health Development and the Provincial Department of Health Office of Zambales
Dr. Jessie Fantone, and will be executed by the SBMA Public Health and Safety Department
The first phase of the SBMA Mobile Vaccination Drive was held at the Binictican Housing area beside Gobstopper Convenience Store last April 13 (Wednesday) from 9am to 12nn that provided vaccination to residents nearby for their first dose, second dose or booster dose.
Next week, on April 22 (Friday), the SBMA PHSD team will be at the SBMA Day Care Center from 9am to
12nn for SBMA employees who wish to be vaccinated without having to go far from their offices.
Also, the DOH-SBMA vaccination program will still be on its regular schedule from 10am to 4pm
on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, except tomorrow, Good Friday, which is a holiday.
However, according to PHSD, their vaccination site has moved a little farther from the Activity
Center to the hallway near HMR at the Harbor Point Ayala Mall, to give way to the summer
activities of the mall.
Currently, the SBMA workforce is at 69 percent boosted, while a little short of 100 percent
vaccinated with primary doses.
The PHSD also reported that they have already administered 30,162 doses of the COVID-19
vaccine since May 2021.
