Makati secures 1 million doses of AstraZeneca vaccine -Mayor Abby

CALOOCAN CITY, Jan. 13 (PIA) -- Makati Mayor Abby Binay today announced that the city government has purchased one million doses of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. 

The mayor signed a tripartite agreement yesterday with the British-Swedish biopharmaceutical company and the national government through the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) through electronic means. 

“We intend to vaccinate all Makatizens, including real property owners, business owners, and non-registered voters who reside in the city. We want them to be safe from the virus, and we are aiming for 100% vaccination in the city,” she said. 

Mayor Abby said the city will launch an information campaign, together with medical experts on infectious diseases and vaccination, to ensure that all doubts, concerns, and questions on the COVID-19 vaccine will be answered. 

She urged Makatizens to take full advantage of the city’s free vaccination.

Makati will launch an online registration portal in the coming weeks. Last week, the mayor announced that the city has allocated P1 billion to purchase COVID-19 vaccines. (PIA NCR)
