The City Government of Muntinlupa announced yesterday that it is set to open a major vaccination hub in a local shopping mall, in addition to existing community vaccination centers, and is set to provide free shuttle for vaccine takers to encourage more residents to get their COVID-19 jab.
Mayor Jaime Fresnedi is set to inaugurate the first major vaccination hub in Ayala Malls South Park, Alabang today together with other local officials. Fresnedi expresses his thanks to the local shopping mall for opening up a space for the city’s vaccination program and says that the initiative will augment vaccine demand generation in Muntinlupa.
The first major vaccination hub in Muntinlupa can accommodate up to 500 residents from Barangays Alabang, Bayanan, and Putatan per schedule. Residents from A2-A3 categories will receive a text message for their assigned schedule while a free shuttle service will be provided for vaccine takers starting 8:00 AM for the following routes: Alabang Barangay Hall to South Park and vice versa, and Muntinlupa City Hall to South Park and vice versa. Additional major vaccination hubs in other local malls will be installed in the coming weeks.
Further, 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.

Fresnedi reported the city’s COVID-19 vaccination status and the local COVID-19 situation including healthcare capacity status and updates on isolation facilities.
