COVID-19 Crisis: Muntinlupa stops accepting walk-ins in vaccination centers due to limited supply

The City Government of Muntinlupa, through MunCoVac, has announced that vaccination centers in the city will stop accepting walk-ins due to limited supply of COVID-19 vaccines.

“Dahil sa limitadong supply ng bakuna, lahat ng ating vaccination sites ay hindi tatanggap ng walk-in simula July 5. Tanging may mga schedule lamang at nakatanggap via text message ang i-aaccommodate sa sites. Magpapatuloy po ang ating vaccination basta’t mayroon tayong supply ng bakuna,” MunCoVac posted in its Facebook page.

MunCoVac further explained that only those who were registered online and were notified via text message for their first and second dose will be accommodated.

The City Government anticipates the delivery of additional supply from the national government in the coming days.

As of July 2, there are 190,747 vaccines deployed in Muntinlupa, of which 149,585 are first dose (38.8% of the target) and 41,162 are of second dose.  While, there are 263,952 registered individuals in MunCoVac, translating to 68.4% of the target population to be vaccinated. Muntinlupa targets to inoculate 385,725 residents which is 70% of 551,036, the city’s estimated population for 2020.

Recently, MunCoVac launched the “Drive-Thru Vaccination” and “Bakuna sa Bahay” for bedridden residents and those who have difficulties in mobility.

In Drive-Thru Vaccination, senior citizens and PWDs who have limited mobility are vaccinated in their cars and will not need to fall in line. While for the house-to-house vaccination, members of the vaccination team will visit bedridden patients and other qualified residents for the service.
