Is anyone among you a resident of Muntinlupa City and you have not registered to get vaccinated for COVID-19? If you are a local resident and if you are willing to get vaccinated, I recommend you register yourself online now. Don’t get overwhelmed with the news about the lack of COVID-19 vaccines in our country. Just get registered now and wait to get contacted. I did my part and got vaccinated with my first dose (and the local organizing was done efficiently and smoothly here in Alabang).
And now we can proceed with the latest developments as reported by the Manila Bulletin!
Firstly, almost 30,000 residents of Muntinlupa got vaccinated. Specifically, the official count was at 28,005 citizens who got injected with the first dose as of May 10, 2021. If you include the residents who got injected with their second dose, the dose count (as opposed to vaccinated people counted) is at more than 34,000 in the city. To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the Manila Bulletin report. Some parts in bold…
The Muntinlupa City government has vaccinated 28,005 residents with the first dose against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
Data from the City Health Office (CHO) showed that as of May 10, there were also 6,301 residents who have received their second dose.
The Muntinlupa City government is using Sinovac Life Science’s CoronaVac, AstraZeneca, and Gamaleya Research Institute’s Sputnik V vaccines for its residents.
Of the 28,005 who were inoculated with the first dose, 5,141 are health care workers (A1), 5,400 are senior citizens (A2), 17,416 are persons with comorbidities (A3) and 48 are other frontline workers (A4).
By vaccine, 21,466, or 77 percent, were given CoronaVac; 4,182, or 15 percent, AstraZeneca; and 2,357, or 8 percent, Sputnik V.
Muntinlupa is one of the five recipients of the first delivery of 15,000 doses of Sputnik V vaccine that arrived in the country on May 1.
Lorelie Bajeta, a Muntinlupa resident, was administered with Sputnik V for the first dose and she said she did not feel any side effects.
“Wala naman (nothing),” she said.
Of the 6,301 who received the second dose, 1,638 were health care workers (A1), 825 were senior citizens (A2), 3,409 were persons with comorbidities (A3), three other frontline workers (A4) and 426 were hospital workers. All of them were given CoronaVac for the second dose. In total, 34,306 doses were administered for the first and second doses in Muntinlupa.
Muntinlupa has four major vaccination hubs at SM Center Muntinlupa in Brgy. Tunasan, Brgy. Sucat covered court, Filinvest Alabang steel parking area and Ayala Malls South Park.
And another important news regarding Muntinlupa is that the initial supply of Sputnik V vaccine in the city has officially been used up. For transparency, here are specific excerpts from another Manila Bulletin report…
The Muntinlupa City government has used up all the 3,000 doses of Sputnik V Gam-COVID-Vac vaccines donated by the national government and received new supply of other brands.
The City Health Office (CHO) finished inoculating residents from priority groups with Sputnik V on May 11 as supplies of the vaccine ran out, the Public Information Office (PIO) said.
According to the CHO, 2,979 residents were vaccinated with Sputnik V on May 11.
Previously, I published a press release about the launch of Sputnik V vaccination in Muntinlupa. It took less than a week for the initial Sputnik V vaccines to run out. More COVID-19 vaccines are coming into the Philippines and that will include an additional 2,000,000 doses of Sputnik V this month.
Once again, to Muntinlupa City residents reading this, I encourage you get registered online to avail of the free COVID-19 vaccines locally. It will take the local authorities some time to sort out all those who registered, but rest assured you will get contacted by email and by text message.
