As the holidays approach, the public is being advised to get vaccinated.
The Davao Region Department of Health (DOH-11) has asked the people to be vaccinated in time for the holidays and to ensure population protection before the month ends.
By November 30, the regional health authority hopes to have immunized about 3.7 million people across the region.
As of November 7, a total of 1.5 million people, or 40.28 percent of the population, had been fully vaccinated with life-saving vaccines.
DOH-11 Assistant Director Lenny Joy Rivera advised vaccinated people to tell their family members, coworkers, colleagues, and neighbors about the vaccine, saying it is the only way to a safer new normal and recovery from the epidemic.
“As the holiday season approaches, and as we safely reopen the economy in accordance with minimum public health standards and ensure that we have an added layer of protection from the Covid-19 vaccine, we can safely go to work, be with our families, and love ones, and mitigate the potential increase in cases,” Rivera said in an interview with the Philippine News Agency on Monday.
Secure and efficient
She assuaged concerns about vaccination by stating that all Covid-19 vaccines licensed by the Philippine Food and Drug Administration with an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) are safe and effective.
“All vaccines are safe and effective, and if infected with the virus, they would minimize the chance of serious sickness and death,” Rivera said.
While vaccination is not required, the government and health professionals encourage people to register with their local government and be vaccinated.
Since the beginning of the immunization rollout in March, the Philippines has administered over one million Covid-19 vaccine doses in a single day.
As of November 6, nearly 29.2 million Filipinos were fully protected against Covid-19, indicating that the country’s vaccination program is on track.
According to the most recent data from the National Covid-19 vaccination dashboard, a total of 63,412,955 doses of Covid-19 vaccine were delivered across the country.
The initial doses were given to 34,202,563 people, whereas the second doses were given to 29,210,392.
