A total of 55.2 million Filipinos have been properly vaccinated.

In the Philippines, 118,944,887 doses of coronavirus disease (Covid-19) vaccines have been delivered, with 55,195,486 Filipinos now fully protected against the terrible infection.

According to the most recent data from the National Covid-19 vaccination dashboard, 4,915,091 of them completely vaccinated have received booster or additional doses.

In the last seven days, the country’s average immunization rate jumped to 797,265 doses, up from roughly 300,000 doses in the preceding weeks.

The administration of primary dosages remains a priority, according to Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr., the principal implementer of the National Task Force Against Covid-19.

Once infected with Covid-19, those who have not been vaccinated are more likely to require hospitalization, have severe illnesses, and die, according to health officials.

According to Galvez, over 3 million senior citizens are still unvaccinated.

“Ang advantages ng first dosage ay more weighted sa boosters, kasi ‘yung mga naka-dalawang dose na at least meron na silang proteksyon,” says the researcher. Ang talagang mag-o-overwhelm ng ating health-care facilities ay’yung unvaccinated (The benefits of the first dosage carry more weight than boosters, and those who have received entire doses have already received protection.) Unvaccinated people would put a strain on our health-care infrastructure),” Galvez said.

The vaccine czar stressed that until the second quarter of this year, the Philippines has adequate Covid-19 vaccine to use as primary doses and booster shots.

At least 100 million doses are presently kept in various storage sites, enough to cover 28 to 30 million unvaccinated people and 25 million people who require booster shots, according to Galvez.
