Muntinlupa City Mayor Jaime Fresnedi appealed to city residents to avail of the local vaccination program for them to have an added protection against the adverse effects of COVID-19 and in a bid to begin the local economic recovery.
Fresnedi urged 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.
“Hinihikayat ko po ang lahat ng Muntinlupeño na magpabakuna dahil bakuna ang solusyon sa pandemya. Kung gusto natin na bumalik sa normal ang buhay, protektado ang ating pamilya, at ligtas ang lahat, magparehistro na at magpabakuna,” Fresnedi said.
The local exec also encouraged city residents who are not yet registered in the city’s own COVID-19 Vaccination Registration System to sign-up through www.vaccine.muntinlupacity.gov.ph/muncovac.
Fresnedi, who is also a senior citizen at 70 y/o, received his first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine last April 8 at Muntinlupa National HS – Tunasan Annex.
