MABALACAT CITY – The local government here, under the leadership of Mayor Crisostomo Garbo, will start to issue the “Mabalacat City Official Vaccination Card” (MCOVC).

Mayor Garbo, together with Vice Mayor Gerald Aquino and COVID-19 Response Integrated System (CRIS) Chief Implementer Dr. Jose Antonio Rivera led the walkthrough of the claiming process at the designated MCOVC releasing station at the 2nd floor bridgeway between the Cyberzone and Wellness Center of SM City Clark.

Dr. Rivera said individuals vaccinated with first and second doses in any of the designated vaccination sites in the city or within SM City Clark cinemas are eligible to claim their MCOVC.

The standard-sized MCOVC contains a Quick Response (QR) Code which, when scanned, may present authenticated vaccination records from the database of the Mabalacat City Management Information System (MISO).

Residents applying for the MCOVC must secure the Mabalacat City Temporary Vaccination Card (MCTVC) and one government-issued or valid identification card (ID) like a driver’s license, passport, GSIS/SSS card, UMID card, PRC ID, Philippine ID (PhilSys), barangay or company ID.

Individuals who lost their MCTVC must present a duly notarized affidavit of loss.

An authorized representative may claim a maximum of three MCOVCs on the owners’ behalf by providing an authorization letter, the MCTVC of the owner, and valid IDs from the owner and the representative.

For companies, an advanced bulk printing of the MCOVC is accepted, subject to the submission of an authorization letter from the company of the requestor, the list of their employees claiming for MCOVC with contact numbers, and a photocopy of ID of the requestor.

Meanwhile, all MCTVC must be surrendered onsite after processing and receiving the official vaccination card, which may only last from three to five minutes.

The Mabalacat City OVC Releasing Station operates from Wednesday to Sunday, 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Joining Mayor Garbo and Vice Mayor Aquino in the inaugural launch were Councilor Cocoy Tiglao, Carlo Dizon, City Information Officer Jay Pelayo IV, and employees and teachers from the Department of Education (DepEd).
