MANILA – Development of the country’s vaccine information management system (VIMS) is underway, the Information and Communication Technology Department said on Monday.

The VIMS will contain a register for the master list and pre-registration of Filipinos for vaccination and a directory of the vaccinated, according to the DICT.

The project started in the city of San Juan, according to DICT secretary Gringo Honasan.

“Ginagawa na ito … Pero lahat ito depende rin sa kakayahan ng local government na hanapin ‘yung data,” he said during a virtual public briefing.

(It’s ongoing … But it all depends on the ability of the local government to find the data.)

“Sinisiguro natin that timely, accurate and complete information regarding the local government for the containment lockdown, ECQ (enhanced community quarantine), MECQ (modified ECQ).”

(We will ensure that local government information on lockdown classifications is timely, accurate, and complete.)

Health Secretary Francisco Duque said earlier that DICT was working on a system to check COVID-19 vaccinations across the country, as the pandemic task force gave local governments the option to keep their policies on current travel or allow fully vaccinated travelers to skip testing protocols as they enter national tourist sites.

More than 20 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in the Philippines since the deployment began on March 1, Malacañang announced on Monday.

Of the 20,863,544 doses administered, 11.7 million were first doses, while about 9.1 million were second doses, according to presidential spokesman Harry Roque.
