MANILA, Philippines- Halos 41 milyong indibidwal sa bansa ang hindi pa natuturukan ng booster dose laban sa COVID-19, ayon sa Department of Health (DOH) nitong Miyerkules.

Sabi ng DOH na halos 56 milyon sa 71 milyong fully vaccinated persons ang kwalipikado para sa unang booster shot. Subalit 15 milyon lamang ang nagpabakuna ng anti-COVID booster.

“According to the latest data from the [National Vaccination Operations Center], as of July 12, 2022: Of the over 71 million fully vaccinated individuals, around 56 million adults are eligible for the first booster. Removing those who have already been given, there are around 41 million adults due for the first booster,” pahayag ng DOH.

Maguggunitang iginiit ni Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire na nananatiling boluntaryo ang COVID-19 vaccination, maging ang pagtuturok ng booster shots.

Gayundin, sinabi niya na sa kasalukuyan ay hindi pa kinakailangang gawing mandatoryo ang COVID-19 booster shots. RNT/SA
