In one day, almost 15K NegOcc residents jabbed Covid-19.

On Day 1 of the third coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) National Vaccination Days (NVD), at least 15,370 individuals of Negros Occidental were immunized.

The Provincial Health Office (PHO) released data on Friday morning showing that 14,808 people received immunizations in all 31 cities and municipalities, as well as 562 in the seven provincial government-owned district hospitals.

However, the data did not specify whether the vaccinees received their first, second, or booster injections.

According to Dr. Ernell Tumimbang, provincial health officer, about 60% of the province’s target population has been fully vaccinated, with 70% of those who received the first dosage.

The 60 percent represents almost 1.1 million people, whereas the 70 percent represents 1.269 million Negrenses.

The province’s immunization target population is 1.825 million people or 70% of the overall population of 2.607 million.

“During the NVD, we’re hoping for increased coverage.” We’re hoping that the immunization rate in Negros Occidental will rise. “Our output for completely vaccinated would already increase if we accelerate the second doses,” Tumimbang added.

During the two-day NVD, the PHO has dispatched immunization teams in Bago, Kabankalan, and San Carlos to supplement troops.

Tumimbang added that immunization centers had been built up in Typhoon Odette-affected villages in Cauayan town, which Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson visited on Thursday.

“We provide immunization services to those who need them.” There are still people who want to be vaccinated, whether it’s for a booster shot or for the first time. “We deployed vaccinators at all five sites visited,” he said.
