Muntinlupa Mayor Jaime Fresnedi has expressed gratitude to President Rodrigo Duterte for allocating 3,000 doses of the Russian-made Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine to the city.

Fresnedi was present along with other government officials during the ceremonial rollout of the vaccine for senior citizens on May 5.

At least 250 members of A2 (senior citizens) and A3 (persons with comorbidities) priority groups are set to receive their first dose of Sputnik V at OsMun, while 130 individuals from A2 and A3 priority groups will be inoculated at the Asian Hospital and Medical Center (AHMC) Tower 2 Rotunda Parking Space.

“This ceremonial roll-out signifies a step closer in returning to our normal lives. We are grateful to the national government for donating additional vaccines to our city as this will help reach our target of achieving herd immunity as soon as possible. I encourage all Muntinlupeños to avail the vaccination program of the government because this is a vital step in curbing the pandemic,” he said.

Only the pre-registered residents in the local COVID-19 Vaccination Registration System will be inoculated with Sputnik V in OsMun and AHMC.

Residents will receive a message from the local health office for their schedule and no walk-ins will be accommodated in the vaccination areas in OsMun and AHMC. Muntinlupa residents are encouraged to register via www.vaccine.muntinlupacity.gov.ph/muncovac.
