Isko Moreno: A thinking, “walang tulugan” mayor

January 18, 2022 People's Tonight 229 views

Itchie CabayanIN Manila, Mayor Isko Moreno had given the famous line of Kuya Germs, “walang tulugan” a literal meaning.

For several days now, he had been personally visiting, in the wee hours of the morning, the 24-hour booster vaccination drive-thru caravan at the Quirino Grandstand to monitor its status and check on ways to further improve its services.

Filipinos are lucky that whatever Manila enjoys right now, they do too.

Booster vaccination hubs have been designated for two-wheel, three-wheel, and four-wheel vehicles. These are apart from the booster shots being given in community health centers, shopping malls, and schools.

First opened was the vaccination for two-wheel riders — bicycles and motorcycles at the Bonifacio Shrine.

Moreno and Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna opened four lanes for booster vaccination drive-thru at the Quirino Grandstand, this time for four-wheel vehicles such as jeeps, taxis, private cars, company cars, and even Grab.

Due to the highly positive response and turnout, Moreno, Lacuna, Manila Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office chief Arnel Angeles, Manila Traffic and Parking Bureau head Dennis Viaje and Manila Health Department chief Dr. Poks Pangan came up with the decision that the vaccination at the Quirino Grandstand is done round-the-clock.

Moreno and Lacuna opened at the Ospital ng Maynila’s new building another drive-thru vaccination hub for members of the transport groups. At the Quirino Grandstand and the Ospital ng Maynila, those interested to avail of booster shots are also allowed to bring family members or friends.

Indeed, Isko Moreno is a ‘thinking’ mayor, and gives justice to his slogan “Bilis Kilos.”
