The COVID-19 vaccination program in Baguio already began last March. Qualified health care workers in the province have received the first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and are now onto their second doses. Meanwhile, people with comorbidities are currently receiving their vaccines.

While the vaccination program in Baguio goes on, the city’s Health Services Office (HSO) is continuously encouraging its citizens to register for the program. The master listing for specific priority groups is underway and registration forms are still open. If you’re a Baguio resident who wishes to get the vaccine shot or has a family member who does, read on and find out how you and your loved ones can get inoculated and protected from COVID-19.

How to Register for Baguio’s COVID-19 Vaccination Program

The COVID-19 vaccination program in Baguio City has advanced to the A3 Priority groups or people with comorbidities aged 18 to 59 years old. Priority A1 group or healthcare workers in essential health services who received their first doses last March are now receiving their second doses. The Department of Health Center for Health and Development - Cordillera (DOH-CAR) allotted a total of 11,335 doses of vaccines for Baguio City, of which 6,885 doses are Sinovac vaccines and 4,450 doses are from AstraZeneca.

As per the report submitted by the City Health Services Office (HSO), 11,290 members of the eligible population in Baguio have been vaccinated. This comprises 97.72% of the 11,335 health workers in the province’s Priority A1 list. Meanwhile, 729 from the Priority A3 group have been inoculated with the Sinovac vaccine.

The HSO continues to call on citizens to register for the vaccination program, since the master listing for the Priority A2 (senior citizens), A3 (adults with comorbidities), and A4 (frontline personnel including uniformed personnel) is ongoing.

For residents who wish to register, Baguio City Health Services posted corresponding QR Codes for each priority group that are available for scanning. The QR Codes will direct the patient to the online registration form. They may also choose to register through the registration form links provided by the city if they don’t have a QR code scanner in their mobile phones. Below are the following specific qualifications of each priority group for your guidance:

• Priority A1 - all other healthcare workers and medical workers who are active, such as community-based health workers, midwives, dentists, pharmacists, pharmacy assistants, company healthcare workers, private duty nurses and caregivers, funeral staff, and occupational/physical/speech therapists among others.

• Priority A2 - senior citizens aged 60 years old (completed age of 60 at the time of vaccination) and above

• Priority A3 - people with comorbidities aged 18 to 59 years old; this is the current priority group for vaccination

• Priority A4 - frontline personnel including uniformed personnel and those in working sectors identified by the Inter-Agency Task Force that are client-facing and cannot dutifully meet minimum public health standards

Those who belong in the Priorities A1 and A3 groups who missed their schedule are also encouraged to fill out the rescheduling form for their vaccination. After submitting the form, a text message containing their vaccination schedule and venue from LGU Baguio will be sent to them.
