Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Benhur Abalos inspected the flow of vaccination rollout in several COVID-19 vaccination hubs in the cities of Las Piñas, Muntinlupa and Parañaque.

Videos and photos circulated on social media as thousands of people lined up in various vaccination sites in the metropolis despite curfew hours, violating pandemic protocols, after receiving information that those who have not been vaccinated shall not be entitled to “ayuda” and/or benefits.

Abalos said the queues of people at SM Southmall Las Piñas, Ayala Malls Southmall in Muntinlupa and SM City BF Parañaque were systematic.

"Our overall assessment on the vaccination process on the said areas is very orderly and very efficient. We have our target to protect Filipinos from the deadly coronavirus disease thru inoculation. In fact, the 17 local government units in Metro Manila are expected to administer 250,000 jabs daily during the two-week enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) period,” Abalos said.

He also appealed to the public to stop believing in fake news and misinformation.

"This is a critical phase right now. I'm appealing to everyone. Kaya natin ito basta walang fake news at walang maniniwala sa fake news," Abalos emphasized.

Meanwhile, Muntinlupa City Mayor Jaime Fresnedi said there is a sufficient supply of COVID-19 vaccines to immunize their residents.

“We have five mega vaccination areas in the city. Also, we conduct home service vaccination for bedridden every weekend,” Olivarez said.

Las Piñas City Administrator Reynaldo Balagulan assured that the city government has a proper system in place to ramp up their inoculation program, even during ECQ.
