Along with the simulation exercise, the Biñan LGU also inked a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with its vaccination partner hospitals, which include: University of Perpetual Help System Laguna (Perpetual Help Medical Center–Biñan), Biñan Doctors Hospital, Unihealth Southwoods, and Ospital ng Biñan.

Biñan City Mayor Arman Dimaguila led in the MOA signing, stressing that they will continue to educate Biñanenses on the importance of having themselves vaccinated, especially with the emergence of COVID-19 variants.

In a press conference, Dimaguila expressed his thanks to the city’s doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers for being modern-day heroes in the battle against COVID-19.
