Vaccination is limited in Makati and Muntinlupa cities this Monday due to the lack of supply of COVID-19 vaccine.
According to the announcement by the Makati City local government, there will be no vaccination for the first dose for the A4 Category or those economic frontliners or workers this Monday.
So the vaccination site at Glorietta, Ayala Malls Circuit, Benigno Aquino National High School, and Palanan Elementary School was closed. The second dose is scheduled to be administered at the Makati Coliseum and Fort Bonifacio Elementary School.
Meanwhile, in Muntinlupa, walk-ins at vaccination sites have been banned since Monday. This is also due to the limited supply of the vaccine.

There are only a few vaccines today for the first dose, and you need to receive a text message before going to the vaccination site.
