Manila, Philippines – Kailangan pang mabakunahan ng gobyerno ang nasa 12 milyong indibidwal mula sa target nitong 54 milyon na ma-fully vaccinate laban sa COVID-19 bago matapos ang taon, ayon kay Health Undersecretary Myrna Cabotaje.

“Our target is to reach 54 million fully vaccinated individuals. We have 42 million fully vaccinated so far, so we still have to fully vaccinate 12 million [people],” she said during the Laging Handa briefing.

Ito ang anunsyo ni Cabotaje sa ikalawang bugso ng national vaccination na nagsimula ngayong araw at tatagal hanggang Disyembre 17.

“The primary vaccination remains very important because that is the first battleground and it is our first layer of protection.”

Habang dahil sa naabot na ang target population sa Metro Manila, dapat namang tutukan ang pagtuturok ng booster shots.

“We are confident that we will reach the seven million target.”

“We have enough vaccines and we will have enough for our booster shots. For shelf life, be rest assured all our vaccines are safe, effective and monitored by the Food and Drug Administration,” dagdag pa nito. RNT/FGDC
