Discounts offered at 150 restos: Joy Belmonte thanks bizmen for COVID-19 vax incentives


Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte has expressed her gratitude to business establishments offering discounts and other incentives to customers who have been vaccinated against COVID-19.

Belmonte cited the Ingat-Angat Bakuna Benefits program, where over 150 participating restaurants are offering exclusive discounts to people who have been fully inoculated and can present their vaccination cards as proof.

“Patuloy ninyo kaming pinapahanga dahil kahit nakararanas ng matinding pagsubok ang inyong mga negosyo ay nag-aabot pa rin kayo ng tulong sa ating mga kababayan. In return, we vow to support your incentives for immunity all the way,” she said.

As of June 6, a total of 333,773 individuals belonging to the A1 to A3 priority groups have already received the first dose of their COVID vaccine. This is 19.63 percent of the 1.7 million target population needed to achieve herd immunity or population protection.

The city government is finalizing plans for the vaccination of individuals under the A4 category, which include essential workers living or working in the city.
