On April 19, Cebu City and Lapu-Lapu City launched vaccinations for senior citizens, the next individuals on the priority list. As of April 22, 3,000 senior citizens in Cebu City have received a dose. The vaccination program was held at Robinsons Galleria and the University of Cebu Banilad . Cebu City Health Department (CHD) Officer-in-Charge Jeffrey Ibones mentioned that there were more than 50 volunteers who came without prior registration but were still given the vaccine. Walk-ins are discouraged as a safety protocol, and Ibones advised senior citizens who want to be vaccinated against the virus to register online at www.PABAKUNATA.com, the Vaccine Advisory Board’s website for vaccinating Cebuanos.
However, as of April 23, the vaccination has been halted due to a shortage of vaccines . Ibones expressed hope that the city would receive more vaccines so the program can be restarted.
