account_balanceMuntinlupa chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

The local government of Muntinlupa opens its third major vaccination hub in a shopping mall’s open parking space, in addition to existing community vaccination centers, to encourage more residents to get their COVID-19 jab.

At least 500 vaccine takers are expected to be accommodated in the Filinvest Alabang - Steel Deck Parking (in front of Crimson Hotel), the city’s third major vaccination hub. Mayor Jaime Fresnedi and other Filinvest officials led the opening of the vaccination hub on April 30.

The local government clarifies that only residents from the A2 (Senior Citizens) and A3 (Persons with Comorbidities) priority groups who received a text message and confirmed for their assigned schedule will be accommodated. Walk-ins will not be entertained in the major vaccination hub.

Senior citizens are advised to bring a valid ID and medical clearance if they have comorbidities. For residents under the A3 (persons with comorbidities) priority group, they are enjoined to provide a valid ID and any proof of comorbidity such as: medical certificate from an attending physician, prescription for medicines, hospital records such as the discharge summary and medical abstract, surgical records and pathology reports, or any other proof that may indicate eligibility.

Other officials joining the opening of the city’s third major vaccination hub include: Coun. Allan Camilon, Coun. Ryan Bagatsing, City Health Officer Dr. Juancho Bunyi, Filinvest Alabang Inc Vice President Don Ubaldo, Filinvest Property Management VP Cesar Francisco and Filinvest Retail and Commercial SVP Joselito Santos.

Recently, other major vaccination hub were launched at SM Center Muntinlupa Open Parking Area, Brgy. Tunasan last April 27 and Ayala Malls South Park, Brgy. Alabang last April 24.

According to Muntinlupa City Health Office, at least 511 residents received their COVID-19 jab during the launching of the vaccination hub at SM Center Muntinlupa while 216 were vaccinated at Ayala Malls South Park.

As of April 28, a total of 22,960 Muntinlupa residents were inoculated with the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, of which 18,796 received Sinovac and 4,164 inoculated with AstraZeneca. While 832 residents from priority groups received their second dose.

Fresnedi urges residents who are members of the priority groups to get their COVID-19 jab as it helps prevent the risk of severe illness, hospitalizations, and death from COVID-19. He also noted that the vaccination program is an integral component of realizing economic recovery in the city.

The local exec encouraged city residents who are not yet registered in the city’s COVID-19 Vaccination Registration System to sign-up through www.vaccine.muntinlupacity.gov.ph/muncovac.

Community vaccination sites in the barangays will continue to accommodate other residents from different priority groups. The schedule in barangay vaccination centers will be posted in the City Government of Muntinlupa Facebook Page.

For inquiries and other concerns, the public may contact MunCoVac hotline numbers: 0956 358 9228 / 0915 805 5932 / 0915 806 7419 / 0960 588 5935 / 0960 588 5937 / 0998 249 4580.

Muntinlupa City has 10,959 confirmed cases with 9,465 recoveries, 1,205 active cases, 289 reported deaths, 172 suspect cases, and 926 probable cases as of April 29.
