The Muntinlupa City government on Tuesday has resumed the vaccination of people belonging to the A4 priority group, or essential workers, and is now allowing walk-ins subject to the availability of spare vaccines.
According to the Muntinlupa City COVID-19 Vaccination Program (MunCoVac), starting June 22, the vaccination sites at SM Center Muntinlupa in Brgy. Tunasan and Ayala Malls South Park in Brgy. Alabang will accommodate A1 (health workers), A2 (senior citizens), A3 (persons with comorbidities) and A5 (poor population) priority groups.
For A4, they will be vaccinated at the Festival Mall upper ground floor covered parking area, New Cupang Health Center and Sucat covered court.
At the vaccination site at De La Salle Santiago Zobel School inside the Ayala Alabang Village, groups that will be vaccinated are A1, A2, A3 and A4. No vaccination will be held at the Poblacion Elementary School located at Southville 3 housing project in Brgy. Poblacion.
In addition, MunCoVac has announced that “walk-ins will only be accommodated if there are spare vaccines due to no-shows,” referring to people who have received their vaccination schedule but do not show up at the vaccination site.
Before Tuesday, the Muntinlupa City government vaccinated A1, A2, A3 and A5 using the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine donated by the national government that came from the COVAX facility.
People in the A4 category were not vaccinated with the COVAX-sourced vaccine due to guidelines for its use.
