Once Covid-19 vaccines arrive, Philippines plans to vaccinate 300,000 residents every day


- Advertisment -

Once the purchased vaccines against the deadly coronavirus arrived, the Philippines aims to vaccinate some 250,000 to 300,000 residents on a daily basis, a top government official revealed. 

The national government began inoculating the vaccine last week after donated vaccines from Chinese drugmaker Sinovac and the global alliance COVAX Facility arrived. 

It was earlier reported that the Philippines aims to vaccinate 50 to 70 million adults or two-thirds of the country’s 108 million people this year to achieve herd immunity. 

“We have a goal of inoculating of about 50 million Filipinos this year. To achieve that great target we need to, for the remainder of the year, especially when the bulk of the vaccine comes in, give roughly about 250,000 to 300,000 per day,” Secretary Vince Dizon told ANC’s Headstart. 

He added that in the initial stages, ‘it will be really difficult’ to measure this as the vaccine supply is just ‘trickling in at the moment.’ 

The Global Filipino Magazine is the only Filipino magazine in the UAE that prints on a monthly basis. Its goal is to champion the success of every global Filipino across the globe.
