65.5 million Filipinos are fully vaccinated; 11.7 million have received Covid-19 booster shots.
MANILA – The Philippines has administered 141.2 million doses of coronavirus diseases (Covid-19) vaccines nationwide, with over 65.5 million individuals receiving complete protection, including those who received the Janssen and Sputnik Light single-shot vaccines.
According to the latest data from the National Task Force (NTF) Against Covid-19, 11.7 million of those fully immunized have booster shots as of Friday.
Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr., the NTF’s chief implementer, previously stated that the government will prioritize the Covid-19 vaccination program in regions and provinces that are falling short of their targets.
The country’s massive vaccination program has aided in the decline of cases, with this week’s infections down 15% from last week, according to the Department of Health (DOH).
According to DOH Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire, there are 454 daily cases on average, down from 490 in December prior to the Omicron variant’s surge.
“We vaccinated massively during the surges and immediately decided to administer a booster three months after the primary boosters were administered,” Galvez explained in a previous interview.
Since February of last year, the Philippines has received over 239.7 million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine, both purchased and donated.
The most recent addition is a Thursday night shipment of 936,000 Pfizer doses.
