Passengers of LRT 2 can get their COVID-19 vaccines at Recto and Antipolo Stations starting Tuesday, Feb. 22 as the government ramps up its immunization campaign, management said Sunday.
The Light Rail Transit Authority partnered with the city governments of Manila and Antipolo to make COVID-19 vaccines "easily available, accessible, and convenient to the riding public," said its administrator, Jerermy Regino.
Commuters can get their first dose and booster vaccinations at Recto Station every Tuesday and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and at Antipolo Station every Wednesday and Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
"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 said.
The city of Manila earlier opened a 24/7 drive-thru vaccination site at the Quirino Grandstand in a bid to get as many people vaccinated as possible.
