PH administers almost 103 million vaccine doses, with 45.2 million Filipinos completely vaccinated.
As of Wednesday, the Philippines had provided a total of 102,988,677 doses of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) vaccines across the country, with 45,284,617 Filipinos fully vaccinated and 1,194,321 more receiving booster shots.
Despite the devastation caused by Typhoon Odette, which forced the government to postpone the second round of massive vaccination drives in affected areas, the government remains optimistic that it will meet its goal of fully vaccinating at least 54 million Filipinos by the end of the year in order to achieve population protection.
The arrival of 1,358,600 doses of the Moderna vaccine procured by the private sector through a tripartite agreement was hailed by the National Task Force (NTF) Against Covid-19 on Tuesday night.
The recently delivered vaccines, according to NTF’s Clifford Basco, will be utilized as primary doses and booster shots.
Basco emphasized the business sector’s significant support to the government’s Covid-19 pandemic response plans.
He said the latest shipment boosted the country’s total vaccination doses received since February to 192,345,450, including both procured and donated vaccines.
“This indicates that we have a sufficient supply of Covid-19 vaccinations on hand. Our stockpile contains more than 90 million doses “Basco said.
He urged more Filipinos to be vaccinated and follow the basic public health requirements once more.
Basco stated that the nationwide mass immunization campaign has had a significant role in the decrease in Covid-19 infections in the country.
