In the third national immunization push, Bicol expects an additional 266K people to get vaccinated.

During the third national government vaccination campaign against Covid-19 on February 10 and 11, the Department of Health Center for Health Development (DOH-CHD) Bicol hopes to inoculate 266,340 people.

The “Bayanihan, Bakunahan 3,” according to Noemi Bron, DOH-Bicol Health and Promotion chief, will encompass people aged 12 and up who have not yet received their main and booster immunizations.

“Of the entire target, 117,180 people need to have their first dose, and 149,160 people need to get their booster dose,” Bron explained.

Booster shots are recommended for those who were immunized at least three months after the second dose of a two-dose vaccination or at least two months after single-dose jabs.

AstraZeneca, Sputnik, Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech, and Sinovac are the leading two-dose vaccinations, while Janssen and Sputnik Light are the primary single-dose vaccines.

A total of 1,776 volunteers will be stationed across the six provinces to help with registration, counseling, screening, immunization, monitoring, and recording.

“The volunteers are nurses, IT experts, and everyday folks who wish to help with the vaccine effort,” Bron explained.

According to Bron, the public should only heed to the information given by the DOH to prevent receiving incorrect information on Covid-19 and vaccination.

Meanwhile, Kenn Nuyda, Nurse V of the Regional Epidemiology and Response Unit, spoke on the necessity of immunization for children aged 5 to 11 years in a radio interview.

“Children in this age group are not immune to catching the Covid-19 virus from other persons in the home, such as adults,” Nuyda explained.

Covid-19 incidences were reported in 1,007 boys and 877 girls aged 5 to 11 years old in the Bicol Region as of February 6.

There is currently no immunization schedule in place in the region for children under the age of six.
