Munti rolls out anti-COVID vaccination for fisherfolk

QUEZON CITY, (PIA) --The city government of Muntinlupa through its City Health Office (CHO) launched the “Rolling Bakuna” for fisherfolks at the Bayanan Baywalk last January 26.

The Rolling Bakuna program started its mobile vaccination in 2021 catering to all barangays and various communities. It was recently relaunched in an effort to stamp out the COVID-19 pandemic and reduce it to an endemic state.

"We need to think of the welfare of our community and loved ones as well," Mayor Ruffy Biazon said as he encouraged Muntinlupeños to get vaccinated or avail of a booster shot to protect themselves and the people around them especially from mutated variants of COVID-19.

The latest Omicron subvariant is reportedly more easily transmitted than previous versions of the virus. Health authorities have advised Filipinos to get vaccinated in order to reduce the opportunity for the COVID-19 coronavirus to mutate and remake itself as it gets passed from host to host.

City Health Officer Dr. Juancho H. Bunyi encouraged 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 no fees are needed, and the rolling vaccination caravan is on-call and so with the locally maintained vaccination sites in the city which are open daily.
