No special treatment: Muntinlupa LGU explains how Aga Muhlach, family got COVID-19 jab


Aga Muhlach caused quite a social media stir when photos circulated on social media showing him and his family receiving COVID-19 vaccines in Muntinlupa.

Netizens raised their eyebrows as to how the actor, his wife Charlene Gonzalez, and their children were able to get the vaccine so fast when they appeared healthy.

In a statement, Muntinlupa public information officer Tez Navarro clarified that no special treatment was given to the Muhlachs.

“They registered at MUNCOVAC three weeks ago under A3. They presented medical certificates from a private hospital in Muntinlupa, and received a text to confirm their schedule last Monday,” she said.

Navarro said the celebrity family followed all the procedures at the vaccination site and waited for their turn to be vaccinated.

“We are inclusive in Muntinlupa. Rich, poor, politicians, stars, etc. The vaccination program is for all who registered, we encourage all to go to Bakunation. City Health Office already coordinated with DILG. No special treatment to anyone,” she said.
