(UPDATE) Some cities in Metro Manila have opened up COVID-19 vaccine registation for 12 to 17 year-olds as the country battles surges driven by the Delta variant.
Manila Mayor Isko Moreno last week said the city was waiting for the go signal from authorities to administer jabs to younger Filipinos, but that they can pre-register online to save a slot.
The Food and Drug Administration cleared Moderna and PFizer vaccines for emergency use on 12 to 17 year-olds as more young people get infected with COVID-19. Prior to the modification in the brands' EUA, the country only administered jabs to those 18 years old and above.
Mandaluyong on Sunday said minors could sign up online for the jab, with Makati following on Monday.
Those who sign up will be included in the queue will not yet receive the vaccine, but will be called once authorities approve the use of COVID-19 vaccines on 12 to 17 year-olds.
Here's how to sign up for the COVID-19 vaccine in Metro Manila if you're 12 to 17 years old:
You can sign up online via Manila's vaccination website. Minors born as late as 2009 can submit an application for the vaccine.
Families in Mandaluyong City can sign up their household's minors for the jab online via the Mandavax website. Aside from basic information, the site will also ask for a household code.
Makati City is doing online pre-registration for 12 to 17 year-olds to update its masterlist. Minors considered for the vaccine are categorized as A4: Makati Resident, Non-Voter.
