MANILA, July 5, 2021 — In its bid to safeguard residents and help reduce the number of Covid-19 cases hitting their city, the local government of Santa Rosa, Laguna, launched its website registration portal for its vaccination program powered by ePLDT — the industry-leading enabler of digital business solutions in the Philippines.
This initiative is part of ePLDT’s ongoing efforts to support LGUs (local government units) across the country to help curb the rising cases of Covid-19 through reliable and secure technology.
With the hashtag #LetsGetVacSANTAROSA, the city has launched an online registration portal for qualified Santa Rosa residents for its vaccination rollout. The portal is deployed in Microsoft Azure Stack which is hosted in ePLDT’s VITRO Data Center and is secured via ePLDT Cybersecurity solutions such as DNS Security and SSL-Certificates.
Jovy Hernandez, ePLDT president & CEO and SVP & head for PLDT and Smart Enterprise Business Groups, explains the urgency of equipping local governments with PLDT and ePLDT solutions.
“The need to quickly deploy the vaccine registration portal of Santa Rosa City is a priority, especially now that vaccines are available. PLDT Enterprise & ePLDT are committed to enabling the government’s pandemic response and efficient vaccine distribution through our digital solutions that ensure public services are delivered securely and at-scale to the citizenry,” Hernandez said.

“Now more than ever, we in Santa Rosa are looking forward to fully protecting our residents from Covid-19,” according to Santa Rosa City Mayor Arlene B. Arcilla. She expressed gratitude for the partnership with ePLDT.
“Through the untiring efforts of ePLDT and the reliable technology available, we hope to be able to vaccinate many of our priority groups, and eventually most residents, in due time. Let’s get back to normal, let’s get vaccinated!”
