Residents, who have signed up in the city's online vaccination program, are urged to wait for a confirmatory text indicating vaccination schedules before going to the sites to prevent crowding.

"Let us all do our share. Please register now and get yourselves vaccinated. A confirmatory text will be sent to you indicating your schedule once it is your turn,” he said.

Zamora also noted the city government has enough supply of vaccines.
