A total of 170,000 vaccinators are required for the national immunization program.
During the three-day nationwide Covid-19 vaccination drive from Nov. 29 to Dec. 1, the administration hopes to recruit 170,000 to 200,000 medical workers to serve as vaccinators.
Dr. Kezia Rosario of the National Vaccination Operation Center (NOVC) stated the government needs to prepare higher capacity for the “Bayanihan, Bakunahan” Day in an interview at the Palace news briefing on Thursday.
She noted that the government will have to “activate all resources,” including those from the private sector and other government line agencies.
“So, in terms of vaccines, we’ll need to deploy roughly 170,000 people. We anticipate a population of up to 200,000 people “she continued.
The immunization program, according to Rosario, evokes a “Bayanihan” spirit by inviting healthcare professionals from diverse medical areas to participate in the statewide event, including doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, medical technologists, and other medical volunteers.
“Ito naman ay ginagawa natin, not only sa pagbabakuna, ganoon din sa pag-address ng Covid-19,” she said.
Carlito Galvez Jr., the head of the National Task Force (NTF) against Covid-19 and the vaccine czar, said in a statement that the government aims to administer five million doses each day during the three-day inoculation.
Galvez went on to say that the plan aims to speed up the country’s immunization program in order to ensure population protection as quickly as possible.
The NTF and NVOC want Malacaang to issue an executive order and the Department of Health to issue a department circular proclaiming the three-day “Bayanihan, Bakunahan” drive a regular holiday.
