MANILA, Philippines – The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) on Wednesday began the vaccination against novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) of its personnel who are senior citizens and with comorbidities.
MMDA chairperson Benhur Abalos said around 200 employees belonging to the A2 (senior citizens) and A3 (with comorbidities) priority groups were administered with Sinovac Biotech’s CoronaVac vaccine at the agency’s headquarters in Makati City.
Around 80 medical personnel of the MMDA were already vaccinated against COVID-19 on Monday.
Abalos said the MMDA has a high infection rate among its personnel because they are among the frontline workers in the fight against COVID-19.
“Kaya, humingi kami ng tulong sa DOH (Department of Health) para mabakunahan ang ating mga frontliners, lalong lalo na ang aming traffic enforcers, ang mga nasa field,” he said.
The agency is targeting to fully inoculate all its 8,000 employees.
Abalos himself received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. His initial dose was given last March 1.
The MMDA has so far recorded a total of 771 COVID-19 infections with 100 active ones. About eight personnel succumbed to the disease. – RRD (with details from Correspondent JP Nuñez)
