Manila LGU urges: Get vaccinated

The lady mayor also urged those aged 12 to 17 to get vaccinated or boosted

The local government of Manila is urging its residents and parents to have children inoculated against the coronavirus disease as face-to-face classes are already being implemented.

Manila Mayor Honey Lacuna stressed that they are intensifying the city’s vaccination drive following reports that inoculation to kids five to 11 years old is low and as of 20 January, only 73, 205 minors aged five to 11 were recorded as fully vaccinated.

The lady mayor also urged those aged 12 to 17 to also get vaccinated or boosted, as records show that only 147,610 minors belonging to the said age group have received the shots.

According to Lacuna, vaccination against Covid-19 may be readily availed of in the more than 40 health centers spread all over the city.

In general, Lacuna said that those getting booster shots in Manila are noticeably low, whether the first or second booster shots and there are cases that those who got the first booster ignore the second booster shots.
