Vaccinated Las Piñas residents could win house and lot, motorcycles

Residents of Las Piñas who have received COVID-19 vaccine could get a brand new house and lot as well as groceries and motorcycles.

The incentive program "May Bahay sa Bakuna: Bakunado Ka Na, May Bahay ka Pa" is open to all residents of the city who already received a single dose of any COVID-19 vaccine brand.

It was initiated by Las Piñas Representative Camille Villar to convince her constituents to get vaccinated.

"We want to reinforce the importance of getting vaccinated for people, their families, and the community. It will not only protect people but help our economy slowly recover,” Villar said in a press release.

"Through this effort, we also have a chance to increase awareness and confidence in vaccines," she added.

Residents must be at least 18 years old to be able to join the program. Raffle tickets are available in all barangay halls for those who have already been vaccinated and in vaccination centers for those newly-inoculated.

The tickets may be dropped in barangay halls as well as in AllHome and AllDay supermarket branches in Las Piñas City.

Monthly draws will be held starting July 15 wherein 50 winners will be given "pangkabuhayan showcase" worth P5,000.

On the other hand, the grand draw will be on December 24 wherein the winner will get two motorcycles and a house and lot from Bria Homes.

So far, more than one million individuals were already vaccinated against COVID-19, the Department of Health said.

A total of 1,029,061 people have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, 581,797 of whom are health workers, 195,952 are senior citizens, 250,777 are persons with comorbidities, and 535 are essential workers.—AOL, GMA News
