Mayor Binay announces free COVID-19 vaccine for Makati residents

Makati City Mayor Abby Binay on Monday announced that all citizens of the city would be provided with COVID-19 vaccine for free.

According to Binay, the city government allocated P1 billion for the purchase of the COVID-19 vaccine. It was not yet disclosed from what pharmaceutical firm the local government would buy the vaccine.

Binay said the local government is already setting up an online registration system for the safe access of Makati residents to the free COVID-19 vaccine. She added that the guidelines would be disclosed soon.

Earlier, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno launched a pre-registration portal for the free COVID-19 vaccination for the city’s residents.
