9 Antipolo Residents Arrested After Found Presenting Fake Vaccination Booking

Authorities arrested ninie (9) residents from Antipolo City after they were discovered presenting fake booking to get free vaccination.

After displaying a bogus appointment to be vaccinated against COVID-19, nine people of Antipolo City were arrested. Mayor Andrea Bautista Ynares expressed his displeasure with the nine and those who took advantage of the free immunization.

Antipolo Fake Vaccination Booking

Three suspects attempted to be vaccinated at a vaccination site by showing text messages apparently from the Antipolo Vaccination Operation Center (AVOC) alerting them that they were due to be immunized on that day, according to the Mayor’s Facebook post.

However, when they checked the system, their names were not on the schedule and the number allegedly texted them the said appointment did not belong to the Antipolo Vaccination Operation Center.

“Nang ating i-check sa system ay wala naman ang kanilang mga pangalan sa mga naka-schedule at ang numerong kanilang ipinang-text ay hindi rin pag-aari ng Antipolo Vaccination Operation Center,” Ynares said.

As a result, nine residents were arrested and escorted to the police station, where they admitted to the fraud (text fraud). As a result, Ynares reminded citizens to follow the correct procedure.

“Halos 1 milyon ang populasyon ng Antipolo City. Ginagawa po ng pamahalaang lokal ang lahat upang mabakunahan tayo sa lalong madaling panahon. Imbes na aksayahin ang oras sa panlalamang sa kapwa, igugol na lang po natin sa pagdarasal para sa agarang pagdating ng mga bakuna mula sa DOH at ibang bansa,”  said the mayor.
