Manila will implement a home service vaccination program after its pilot rollout showed success, according to a report by Manila Times.

Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso said the program caters to residents who are bedridden.

“I don’t want anyone to be left behind,” the mayor said in a television interview on Monday. “Even if they’re near the vaccination site, we still need to get to them because they are bedridden.”

“Even those 18 years old and above who are bedridden are included, not just the senior citizens,” he added.

Domagoso directed all village chiefs to submit a list of their bedridden constituents.

He also encouraged those with bedridden relatives to reach out to their barangay officials.
