This month, NegOcc intends to reach the 1.8 million Covid-19 vax target.

In February, the provincial government of Negros Occidental hopes to attain its target population of 1.825 million people for the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) immunization.

This equates to 70% of the province’s total population of 2.607 million people.

According to data released by the Department of Health-Western Visayas on Thursday, Negros Occidental had a vaccination rate of 69.53 percent, or 1.269 million, with 60.43 percent, or 1.103 million, fully vaccinated as of February 3.

Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson stated that more effort is required to reach the goal.

“If we want to achieve the February deadline, we need to give it a final push so it’s a photo finish.” I believe we’ve reached 60% of our goal. That’s still 40%, and meeting it will take a lot of effort,” he continued.

Lacson believes Negros Occidental can “finally achieve herd immunity” by meeting the target this month.

According to the Provincial Health Office, at least nine local government entities have administered at least one dose to more than 70% of their target population.

Dr. Ernell Tumimbang, provincial health officer, previously stated that the government’s lobbying is critical in persuading individuals to get the Covid-19 vaccine.

He noted that despite a plentiful supply of vaccines, there are no takers, particularly in locations with a failure rate of less than 50%.

“There are still people who don’t understand why they need to get vaccinated and don’t understand the necessity of the vaccination,” Tumimbang added.
