NVOC compares 64 million fully vaccinated Filipinos to Covid-19.
MANILA, Philippines — According to a health authority, around 64 million Filipinos have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
As of March 9, the government has provided 137 million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine, including 10.7 million booster shots, according to Myrna Cabotaje, the director of the National Vaccinations Operations Center.
“Nag-set tayo ng milestone,” says the narrator. We’ve set milestones for ourselves (We’ve set milestones for ourselves.) 70 million people will be fully vaccinated by March. Then, by the end of June 2022, 90 million Filipinos would have been properly vaccinated,” she declared in a press conference.
Cabotaje underlined that booster doses can only be administered to properly immunized patients who are 18 years old or older.
Booster doses are not suggested for anyone aged 17 and under in the United States or abroad because researchers are currently researching how long vaccine protection lasts in the primary host, she said.
Nonetheless, she stated that the country’s immunization coverage for youngsters between 12 to 17 years old is good. On November 21, 2021, the age group inoculation began.
Dr. Nina Gloriani, the head of the Vaccine Expert Panel, previously stated that other countries are already looking into the potential of administering booster doses to sick people in this age group.
The national government held the 4th National Vaccination Drive from March 10 to 12 with the goal of inoculating 1.8 million people to increase these numbers.
The A2 population, or senior persons, and areas with poor vaccination rates, such as the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, Central Visayas, Soccsksargen, and Bicol Region, are the focus of ongoing vaccination operations.
