As the Philippines registers its fourth Omicron case, Filipinos are being advised to be vaccinated.

Now that a fourth case of the Omicron (B.1.1.529) coronavirus variant has been found in the country, a health official underlined the need for the Covid-19 vaccination campaign for Filipinos on Monday night.

Dr. Ma. Paz Corrales, medical consultant for the National Task Force (NTF) Against Covid-19, welcomed the arrival of Air Hong Kong Flight LD 456 carrying 1,187,550 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 in Pasay City, emphasizing that “vaccination is an added protection for all Filipinos.”

“We already have four cases of Omicron variant,” Corrales added. “We should push more people to get vaccinated in preparation for its likely spread across the country.”

Corrales encouraged those who have yet to receive their primary doses and those who have already qualified for booster doses to obtain their respective Covid-19 shots, citing the highly transmissible Omicron variant’s spread in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia.

The recently arrived consignment is part of the government’s purchase of Pfizer Covid-19 vaccinations, which was made possible by Asian Development Bank funds.

“Despite the recent typhoon’s devastation, we were able to jab [over] 47 million Filipinos. We’re all doing our best to vaccinate as many Filipinos as possible, especially in typhoon-ravaged areas “Corrales explained.
