All praises for Fresnedi: Tugade to request more COVID-19 vaccines for Muntinlupa
Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade has vowed to request more COVID-19 vaccine doses for Muntinlupa as he praised the city’s efficient vaccination system.
Tugade praised Muntinlupa Mayor Jaime Fresnedi on Tuesday, June 15, after he received his second dose of COVID-19 vaccine at Ayala Malls South Park, Alabang. He was inoculated as part of the A2 priority group for senior citizens.
“Maayos ang sistema at properly trained ang mga nagtuturok ng bakuna. Isa ang Muntinlupa sa mga nag-improve na LGU sa Metro Manila pagdating sa pagbabakuna,” Tugade said.
The local government recently recorded the highest number of vaccinations with over 5,450 individuals who were vaccinated with their first dose last June 10. It is the highest record since the rollout of vaccination in Muntinlupa last March.
As of June 11, the total vaccines deployed in the city is at 106,819, of which 80,356 were given as 1st dose and 26,463 for 2nd dose. There are already 159,490 registered individuals in the city’s COVID-19 vaccine registration system MunCoVac, which comprises 41.3% of the target population to be vaccinated.
