Glan launches pre-registration online app for Covid-19 vaccination

GLAN, Sarangani (March 23, 2021) – In anticipation of the mass vaccination against Covid-19, the municipality of Glan has launched the online pre-registration tool DVYVAC to capture the health declaration of its residents who will be receiving the shots.

During the launching on March 19, Mayor Vivien Yap explained the DVYVAC or Data Vault for Your Vaccination Program as a QR-based application where individuals who register will be asked about their underlying medical conditions such as hypertension, allergies, diabetes, asthma, etc.

These data, she said, will be kept in the DVYVAC for data banking and as the basis for the administration of the vaccine.

Last year, Glan also launched the DVYCARES or Data Vault for Your Covid-19 Assistance Response Emergency System which is a contact tracing tool of the municipality. It provides for a QR Code ID system for Glanians as well as non-residents who wish to enter the town.

Yap, a doctor, said it will be reflected in the DVYVAC QR system if an individual had been vaccinated or not. “This would make things easier for the vaccination.”

“Importante man gud nato mahibaw-an if this person has been vaccinated or not. People who have been vaccinated, chances are, they will become asymptomatic. If they would be positive and sa area nila wala nabakunahan, the rest of the unvaccinated residents matakdan and, chances are, would become asymptomatic also.”

Yap said the DVYVAC is also an instrument for the Rural Health Unit to know the exact percentile of people who have been vaccinated vis-à-vis the 130,000 population of the town.

Bretch Guire Garcinez, founder of Nutnull IT Solutions software company based in General Santos City and the developer of DVYVAC, said the application will also expedite the data gathering of the RHU which he calculated to be 1-2 minutes per transaction compared to the 15-30 minutes estimate for the manual registration. “Or they could register simultaneously,” he said.

For remote areas, Yap said, the health workers who are already deployed in the barangays will assist in the pre-registration using the DVYVAC. (Beverly C. Paoyon/SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)
