Malabon City Mayor Jeannie Sandoval has called on city residents to get their second Covid-19 booster shot to further strengthen their protection against the disease, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

“Sa mga kababayan ko, sa mga taga-Malabon, puntahan po natin ang ating mga health centers para magpabooster po tayo. May mga schedule naman po tayo. Mas maganda po na tayo po’y magkaroon ng second booster. Hindi po naman masama magkaroon ng second booster kasi marami pong nag-aalala sa inyo ( To my fellow residents of Malabon, let us go to our health centers to get the booster shots . We have schedules for it. It is better that we get the second booster. It’s good to have the second booster as there are people worrying about you),”Sandoval said in an interview with DZMM TeleRadyo on Friday, Sept. 30.

She said the number of city residents who already got their second booster jabs is still low and urged more citizens to get the boosters doses.

“Marami rin pong relax na relax na thinking na pag nagkafirst-booster ay okay na tayo. Mas maganda po magkaroon ng second booster at ipagpapatuloy po natin ang mga programang pangkalusugan dito sa bayan ng Malabon (A lot of us have started to relax, thinking that once they get the first booster, they are okay. It is better to have a second booster and we will continue the health programs here in Malabon),” she said.

“Pinapaigting pa natin po [ang booster vaccinations]. Nagpadagdag nga ang DOH ng two special days for booster vaccinations kasi medyo rising daw ang kaso ng Covid dito sa NCR (We are intensifying it [the booster vaccinations]. The DOH has added two special days for booster vaccinations because it is said that there is a slight increase in the cases of Covid here in NCR),” Sandoval added.

She also reminded the residents to still observe health and safety protocols amid the easing of the wearing of face masks in the country.

The local government said that it logged a total of 117 active Covid-19 cases from Sept. 18-24, with 48 asymptomatic patients (41 percent of total active cases), 60 (51 percent ) mild cases, four (3 percent) moderate cases, and five (4 percent) deaths. There were no severe/critical cases recorded.
