THE CITY government of Mandaluyong lauded and recognized schools that supported its vaccine deployment drive.

Mayor Menchie Abalos, along with city officials, personally handed certificates and plaques of appreciation to representatives of the La Salle Green Hills, Jose Rizal University and Rizal Technological University.

These schools partnered with the city government to convert their respective facilities into vaccination centers.

“We couldn’t have reached population protection that early if these schools didn’t offer their spaces. It’s a big factor that helped us deploy vaccines faster,” Abalos said.

The mayor also thanked the Department of Education for converting the Andres Bonifacio Integrated School, Pedro P. Cruz Elementary School, Addition Hills Integrated School, Eulogio Rodriguez Integrated School, Hulo Integrated School, and Isaac Lopez Integrated School into vaccination sites.

Last week, Abalos led the city in honoring the 160 medical personnel of San Miguel Corporation. The SMC Ligtas Lahat Team were deployed in vaccination sites.

The Department of Health lauded Mandaluyong City for its full cooperation in addressing the pandemic.

“Mandaluyong is one of the few cities in NCR that has already achieved population protection – a testament to the city’s “Gawa, Hindi Salita” slogan,” DOH-NCR Regional Director Dr. Gloria Balboa said.
