Several Metro Manila cities on Monday restricted COVID-19 vaccinations, citing limited supply of jabs.
The cities of Makati, Muntinlupa, and Valenzuela have all issued advisories on limited COVID-19 vaccinations.
In Muntinlupa City, walk-ins will no longer be accepted starting Monday, July 5, and only those with confirmed appointments for jabs will be entertained in vaccination sites.
"Tanging may mga schedule lamang at nakatanggap via text message ang i-aaccommodate sa sites," the city government said. "Magpapatuloy po ang ating vaccination basta’t mayroon tayong supply ng bakuna."
Makati Mayor Abby Binay postponed the vaccination of economic frontliners set to receive their first dose in the city on Monday due to the national government’s failure to deliver the jabs. The city also temporarily closed vaccination sites in Glorietta 2, Ayala Malls Circuit, San Lorenzo Place, Benigno Aquino National High School, and Palanan Elementary School.
Also starting Monday, Valenzuela City said it would suspend first-dose vaccinations and scheduling of new appointments for inoculations pending supply from the national government.
The city government however assured those who are scheduled to receive their second dose that their inoculations would push through.
As of Sunday, July 4, a total of 2,868,905 individuals have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 while 8,839,124 have received their first dose.
