Makati to buy 1 million doses of AstraZeneca vaccine
Makati Mayor Abby Binay announced that the city government purchased one million doses of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.
The mayor signed a tripartite agreement yesterday with the British-Swedish biopharmaceutical company and the national government through the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) through electronic means.
“We intend to vaccinate all Makatizens, including real property owners, business owners, and non-registered voters who reside in the city. We want them to be safe from the virus, and we are aiming for 100% vaccination in the city,” she said.
