You Can Get Vaccinated at These LRT Stations
Unvaccinated individuals can finally get jabbed the next time they take the LRT.
The Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA) said it is transforming select stations of the LRT Line 2 as vaccination sites in partnership with the local governments of Manila and Antipolo.
Individuals can get first dose and booster shots to commuters at Recto station every Tuesday and Thursday and at Antipolo Station every Wednesday and Friday. But commuters will first need to register with manilacovid19vaccine.ph for Recto station vaccination and antipolobantaycovid.appcase.net for Antipolo.
“Through the indispensable assistance of the City Governments of Manila and Antipolo, we are making Covid-19 vaccines easily available, accessible and convenient to the riding public,” LRTA Administrator Jeremy Regino said.
LRTA’s announcement comes after Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade ordered the use of railway stations as venues for the vaccination campaign.
“We encourage our commuters and their family members to get booster jabs for added protection as well as those who have no vaccines yet to avail of our vaccination drive,” Regino added.
Regino also promised that the vaccination sites in Recto and Antipolo stations are in accordance to and compliant with the policies, protocols, and requirements of the Department of Health.
