Have you secured your slot for the COVID-19 vaccine in your LGU yet? At Quezon City, residents need to have their names registered online in order to get an appointment for the vaccine. This makes it easier for the local government to see who should be given the vaccine first (senior citizens and those with co-morbidities) and those that can wait a little longer (people without underlying conditions). If you have not made an appointment for your vaccine at QC yet, here’s the step-by-step guide.
- Logon to the QC E-services website at www.qceservices.quezoncity.gov.ph and click on Register Here at the bottom of the page. If you have previously registered an account, just key in your registered email address and password to access your profile. (You may have registered here last year for the Social Amelioration Program).
- Once you have logged in or created an account, you may begin applying for your QC ID. The QC ID is needed so you can register for the vaccine in another app (which I will explain later). Here is the form you need to fill-out when registering for the QC ID.
3. A verification link will be sent to your registered email address. Click on the link to activate your QC E-services account. Once done, you may now begin your application for a QC ID. Choose the QCitizen ID eApplication from the list of services.
4. Login to your QC E-services account and choose QCitizen ID eApplication. You will see a summary of the steps needed for ID application.
5. When applying for a QC ID, you will be asked to upload the following so make sure to have these ready on your computer:
- ID photo with white background
- A photo of your signature on white background or your digital signature if you have one.
- A photo of your valid government-issued ID (you can upload as many as you have, but if you only have one, that will suffice as long as it is valid).
6. After you are done with your QC ID application, you will be issued a Reference Number. Your application status will be tagged as pending until the QC government has verified that all your submitted requirements pass the standards of the app. If all requirements are in order, QCID will be issued in the app in 2 to 3 days. Check your QC E-services account every day to see if your ID is already available.
Take note that a QR code will be generated for your right after you have completed the QC ID application. Download this on your phone or print it out as you will need this on the day of your vaccination. When you QC ID is made available, take a screenshot of that as well or download a copy on your phone.
Setting an Appointment
Now that you already have the QC ID, you can set your appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine. Here’s how:
- Log on to app.ezconsult.io/signin and create your account by choosing the Sign Up as Patient tab.
2. Once you have an account, log on to the app and choose Book Vaccine.
3. Select the vaccine type (COVID-19) and then fill-out all the mandatory fields on the CEIR Form.
4. You will be assigned a patient number after you have submitted your CEIR form. Take note of this number.
After your request has been submitted, your CEIR will be reviewed. Take note that senior citizens and persons with co-morbidities are the LGU’s priority at this time. The LGU is also dependent on the availability of the vaccines.
Remember to check your eZConsult account for updates on your application and when you can set an appointment for your vaccination.
Choose the vaccination area nearest to you, as well as a date when you are sure you can go. Companions are not allowed in vaccination areas. Bring your own pen, alcohol or sanitizer, and other protective gear (masks, shields, etc.). Don’t forget to bring your QR code and downloaded copy of your QC ID.
The vaccination process may be different for other LGUs. We will research on the processes observed by other cities and municipalities and share it here as well.
Keep yourself and your family safe and healthy.
