Oreta leads start of Malabon vaccination
Malabon Mayor Lenlen Oreta has led the vaccination rollout to the city’s health workers and frontliners to prepare them to be inoculated with the COVID-19 vaccine, according to a report by Manila Standard.
Oreta was joined by Dr. Corazon Flores, MPH, CESO IV of DOH -NCR in a ceremonial vaccination at the Ospital ng Malabon.
“We know that there are still a lot of people who fear and who are worried but right now, we hope that more individuals will be encouraged to get vaccinated not just for themselves but for their loved ones also,” the mayor emphasized.
Dr. Mitzi Tanchoco of Ospital ng Malabon was the first to receive the vaccine in the symbolic kick start of the vaccination program.
Oreta hopes to cover at least 70% of the population to be vaccinated.
He was also joined by Malabon Rep. Jaye Lacson-Noel and Councilor Enzo Oreta who also encouraged the public to register for the city’s vaccination program.
“We encourage everyone to have themselves registered so that we can
start the process immediately. Our frontliners have also been practicing for quite some time. They are ready to fulfill their roles.
Oreta said they are just waiting for the vaccines to arrive. “Here in Malabon, we are more than ready. “
