THE UNIVERSITY of the Philippines Visayas allowed the use of its Little Theatre and auditorium for the Covid19 vaccination drive of Iloilo City.

The vaccination in the university was led by Barangay Captain Reyland Hervias and Operations Head Noel Panaguiton.

“With the assistance of members of UP Fight composed of members of alumni associations iAmUPHi and the UP Alumni Association, and the UPV Health Services Unit, the university is extending its facilities for the city’s vaccination rollout until July 8, Thursday,” UPV said.

Other vaccination sites in the city include Central Philippine University, Ateneo de Iloilo, University of San Agustin, and Iloilo Convention Center.

With the simultaneous opening of five sites, the city government vaccinated 6,398 residents including the 499 doses administered in UPV last July 5.

As of June 30, Iloilo City has administered 81,587 doses — 65,927 for the first dose and 15,660 for the second dose.

The city government plans to inoculate 450,000 residents to reach herd immunity.
