Vice-Mayor April Aguilar said for the first dose, a total of 70,770 individuals were given Sinovac, AstraZeneca, Pfzer and Sputnik vaccines while 30, 389 finished their second dose.

Aguilar said of the 101,059 individuals composed of health workers, senior citizens and adults with comorbidities, 1,281 belong to the A4 category.

She said the 17th vaccination site of the city government, The Village Square on Concha Cruz Drive corner Alabang-Zapote Road, was formally opened on June 9 to serve around 300 persons per day.

The vice mayor asked the city residents to be part of the city government’s “Ligtas na Las Pinero, Lahat Bakunado” vaccination program to protect themselves from the virus.

Aguilar reiterates the city government is strictly implementing “no walk-in” policy at the vaccination sites to avoid overcrowding.

She advised those who signed up through manual, online and on-site registration to wait for a text message regarding the date and time of their vaccination.
