Mayor Abby Binay urged Makati residents to register for vaccination as the city now has more COVID vaccines than people to receive them.
In an interview with DZMM Teleradyo on Monday, Binay said she is facing a “good problem” with the city’s vaccine supply.
“May problema ako, na magandang problema dahil marami akong bakuna (I have a problem, but it’s a good problem since I have a lot of vaccines),” Binay said.
“Ako’y nakikiusap sa aming mga kababayan dito sa Makati na magrehistro na dahil ang dami ng ating bakunang dumating ngayong araw na ito (I’m urging the people of Makati to register because the city received a lot of vaccines today),” the mayor added.
Binay said the residents were probably waiting for the brand they wanted that’s why they have not registered yet.
The mayor said the city received 20,000 doses of AstraZeneca, and 5,800 doses of Pfizer from the national government.
“Kailangan ko po magbakuna ng 2,500 for Pfizer. Almost 10,000 for AstraZeneca. Ang backlog ko po wala ng 2,000 (I need to vaccinate 2,500 for Pfizer. Almost 10,000 for AstraZeneca. The city’s backlog is not even at 2,000),” she said.
Meanwhile, the city already began inoculating its residents with the second dose of COVID-19 vaccines.
