IN an effort to stamp out the Covid-19 crisis and reduce it to an endemic state, the city of Muntinlupa is beefing up the rollout of its mobile vaccination activities to bring protection to more of its constituents.
This is a positive development as coronavirus cases in the country continue to decline, which health experts consider as an indication of the imminent post-pandemic era.
To help realize the near end of the ensuing health crisis, the Muntinlupa City Health Office (CHO) launched the “Rolling Bakuna” for fisherfolks at the Bayanan Baywalk last January 26.
This inoculation on wheels program started its mobile vaccination in 2021, catering to all barangays and various communities.
Get vaccinated to avoid infection
MAYOR Ruffy Biazon encouraged local residents to get a jab or avail of a booster shot to protect themselves and the people around them, especially from mutated variants of Covid-19.
“We need to think of the welfare of our community and loved ones as well,” said the local chief executive.
The latest Omicron subvariant is reportedly more transmissible compared to the previous versions of the virus.
Health authorities have advised Filipinos to get vaccinated in order to lessen the opportunity for the coronavirus to mutate and remake itself as it gets passed from one host to another.
City Health Officer Dr. Juancho H. Bunyi urged Muntinlupeños to get periodic booster shots to enhance effectivity of the vaccine, which is designed mainly to reduce the chances of severe Covid.
He, likewise, told Muntinlupeños that they are free of charge, and the rolling vaccination caravan is on-call and so with the locally maintained vaccination sites in the city which are open daily.
