According to an official with the National Task Force (NTF) against Covid-19, the number of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) vaccine doses distributed to the country has surpassed 200 million.

The figure includes the 1,957,000 AstraZeneca vaccine doses acquired through the private sector and delivered to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 at 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

Mayor also stated that a total of 47,128,197 million Filipinos have been fully vaccinated, representing 61.10 percent of the target population and 42.77 percent of the country’s overall population.

Due to the rising health dangers posed by the Omicron strain, Mayor recommended all unvaccinated Filipinos to receive their Covid-19 vaccinations as soon as possible.

He went on to say that the government has more than 20 million Covid-19 vaccine doses on hand, which should be enough for everybody who wants to get immunized.

To accomplish its objective of 54 million people and achieve population protection this year, the Philippines still has to fully vaccinate 7 million Filipinos by the end of the month.

According to data from the national Covid-19 vaccination dashboard, the Philippines has provided a total of 105,329,784 vaccine doses nationally as of December 25, with 47,109,449 Filipinos now fully protected and 1,365,827 others receiving their booster shots.

The country’s average daily Covid-19 vaccination rate has dropped to 675,567 doses as a result of Typhoon Odette’s devastation.
