The Coordinated Operations to Defeat Epidemic (CODE) team recgonized Mandaluyong City government’s coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccination plan, especially its “Ugnayan sa Barangay” program, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

During the team’s visit in Mandaluyong Friday, DILG Assistant Director Debbie Torres lauded Mandaluyong City Mayor Menchie Abalos and the city’s medical officials for their hands-on approach in implementing the  Ugnayan sa Barangay program wherein the mayor herself, together with city doctors and medical practitioners, visits different barangays to properly explain the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the city’s efforts in stopping the spread of the virus, and to urge its residents to be inoculated by explaining to them the benefits of being vaccinated and safety of the vaccines.

Torres said that the city’s Ugnayan sa Barangay initiative is very commendable because of its tremendous effort in urging the residents to be vaccinated and mitigating the number of people who are still hesitant in being inoculated.

City Health Officer Alex Sta. Maria said that 22,302 residents have already pre-registered online for the city’s vaccination drive.

Mayor Abalos previously said that the city has inked a tripartite agreement with British-Swedish biopharmaceutical firm AstraZeneca and the national government for the procurement of vaccines.
