COVID-19 Crisis: First booster shot recipients of Muntinlupa City surpass 180,000

In the progressive City of Muntinlupa, the number of people who received their first booster shots for COVID-19 has surpassed 180,000 while the number of 2nd booster shots recipients exceeded 27,000, according to a Manila Bulletin news report.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin report. Some parts in boldface…

The Muntinlupa City government reported that the number of adults who have received their first booster shot of the Covid-19 vaccine has increased to over 181,000.

It launched its “PinasLakas” campaign on Aug. 15, a program of the national government that aims to fully vaccinate 90 percent of senior citizens and increase booster shot coverage of the target population to 50 percent during the 100 days of the Marcos administration.

Data from the Muntinlupa City Health Office (CHO) showed that as of Aug. 25, the number of adults who were given their first booster dose rose to 181,071, an increase of 3,181 recipients from 177,890 as of Aug. 15.

The total is equivalent to 40.92 percent of the target population of 442,517 or 80 percent of the total Muntinlupa population of 553,146.

The second booster shot recipients also increased to 27,306, up by 2,394 from 24,912 recorded on Aug. 15.

Muntinlupa’s fully vaccinated adults totaled 519,861 or 117.5 percent of the target population.

In addition, there are 43,037 minors aged 12 to 17 who have been fully vaccinated in Muntinlupa or 76.17 percent of the total population of 56,499. Of the fully vaccinated, 5,623 have received their first booster shot.
