3K doses delivered: Fresnedi welcomes Muntinlupa’s inclusion as Sputnik V vaccine
Muntinlupa Mayor Jaime Fresnedi is grateful to the national government for allotting 3,000 doses of Russia’s Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine to the city.
“We are grateful to the national government for donating COVID-19 vaccines to Muntinlupa and the additional supply will help our ongoing vaccination program. As more vaccines arrive in the city, more residents can be inoculated to reach the target herd immunity,” Fresnedi said.
Aside from Muntinlupa, the other cities in Metro Manila which received the COVID-19 vaccine are: Taguig, Manila, Parañaque, Muntinlupa, and Makati.
The Muntinlupa city government stored the vaccines, which were delivered Monday, May 3, in -18 degrees Celsius temperature storage facilities of Ospital ng Muntinlupa (OsMun) and Asian Hospital and Medical Center.
With the cold-chain management requirement of the vaccine, members of priority group in the city will be inoculated in OsMun and Asian Hospital. The vaccine is to be administered in two doses 3 weeks apart.
Fresnedi recently announced that the local government of Muntinlupa is set to open its fourth major vaccination hub in Brgy. Sucat Covered Court on May 4, in addition to existing community vaccination centers.
