- Earlier, a post by the Muntinlupa City Information Office chief Teresita “Tez” V. Navarro, showed the celebrity family of Aga Muhlach and Charlene Gonzalez went to the Muntinlupa COVID Vaccine center to be inoculated
- Some netizens raised a howl about it, asking under what category does the Muhlach family belongs
- The DILG, however, in a statement explained that the four did not violate any guidelines and were all qualified to receive the vaccine
Aga Muhlach and his family are very pleased at having finally receive their vaccination but it appears that some netizens are not happy about it, many of them questioning how come they were all able to get inoculated at the same time.
Earlier, Tez Navarro of the Muntinlupa City Information Office posted photos of the Muhlach family, consisting of Aga, Charlene, and their twin children, Atasha and Andres, sitting on chairs inside the Muntinlupa COVID Vaccination Center (MUNCOVAC).
According to the information officer, the Muhlach family were all there to receive their anti-COVID vaccines.
Some netizens started to question how it became possible for the family to be qualified to receive the vaccine and under what category.
In a report by the Philippine Star, Navarro said that the Muhlach family are qualified under the A3 category as proved by a medical certificate from their doctors.
A Manila Bulletin report quoted Navarro stating that the family followed all procedures and "when they came, they all lined up from Step 1 till Post Vaccination." Navarro also said MUNCOVAC is open to all, as long as they are qualified and follow the steps required.
Today, June 4, CNN reported on the statement released by the DILG saying that the Muhlach family are qualified to be inoculated because they are registered in the MUNCOVAC portal under the A3 category.
According to DILG Undersecretary Jonathan Malaya, the medical certificates of the Muhlach family issued by the Asian Hospital and Medical Center that states they have comorbidities “have been verified.”
“Documents regarding their vaccination were also submitted to the DILG. Therefore, the Department sees no violation of DOH or IATF’s regulations in the aforementioned vaccination,” Malaya said in a statement released Friday.
