The Quezon City government on Wednesday launched a new vaccine initiative called “Bakuna Nights” to cater to some workers under the A4 category.
The name, however, drew hilarious reactions among some social media users.
This program is dedicated to workers who cannot afford to visit a vaccination site during working hours due to their employment commitment. It opens at 6 p.m. after working hours.
Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte said, “Ngayon, hindi na nila kailangang mamili kung arawang kita ba muna o bakuna. We will inoculate them at a time most convenient to them.”
While local social media welcomed this move, what caught the most attention was the name of the program that users perceived to be witty and catchy.
One Twitter user wrote, “Bakuna nights is such a catchy phrase.”Another said, “This is such a neat idea pero tawang-tawa ako sa ‘bakuna nights.’”
Many online users hoped that other cities will follow suit.
