In Valenzuela, the city government will start profiling students aged 12 to 17 for COVID-19 vaccination.

Parents are advised to coordinate with the schools and fill out an information sheet to have their children vaccinated, Mayor Rex Gatchalian said yesterday.

The profiling will start today ahead of the vaccination roll-out for eligible youth, Gatchalian added.

Even non-residents who are studying at schools in Valenzuela will be accommodated, the mayor said.
