QC Mayor Joy Belmonte attributes the success of the city’s Protektodo vaccination program to their health workers, staff, and volunteers.

Belmonte is encouraging QC residents who have not received the Covid-19 vaccine yet to register at the QC Vax Easy platform via https://qceservices.quezoncity.gov.ph/qcvaxeasy.

Domagoso added that the city government has procured life-saving medication such as Tocilizumab and Remdesivir for anyone who needs it.

"Delikado po talaga ang sitwasyon natin kaya sa totoo lamang, ang pamahalaan, katulad ng pamahalaang lokal ng Maynila ay patuloy na dapat tumutugon sa pangangailangan ng tao sa loob ng pandemyang ito (We are still in a dangerous situation, that is why the government, like the local government of Manila continues to respond to the people’s needs in this pandemic)," Domagoso said.
