After the three-day full force nationwide vaccination drive set by the national government, Southern Leyte jabs 34,623 individuals, including children ages 12-17-year-old from different vaccination sites last November 29-30 to December 1; the vaccination will be extended until December 3.
From the data presented by Provincial Health Officer Dr. Feliciano Matibag during the Provincial Inter-Agency Task Force (PIATF) virtual meeting last December 2, with the targeted 22,496 jabs per day, only 17,512 individuals got inoculated on the first day, November 29; on November 30, 13,843; and 13,268 on the third day, December 1.
The province procured two (2) ultra-low freezer for Pfizer vaccines which will be used for children’s vaccination, Antigen test and Universal Transport Medium (UTM) kits, Matibag added.
As of the data forwarded, Maasin City has the highest number of vaccinated individuals during the three-day vaccination drive with 11,038; followed by Sogod, with 5,246; Saint Bernard, with 2,079; Bontoc, with 2,010; Macrohon, with 1,778; Hinunangan, 1,727; San Juan (Cabalian), 1,679; San Ricardo, 1,622; Pintuyan, 1,555; Hinundayan, 1,530; Tomas Oppus, 1,272; Liloan, 1,239; San Francisco, 1,198; Silago, 980; Libagon, 913; Malitbog, 835; Limasawa, 755; Padre Burgos, 443 and Anahawan, 349.
“It doesn’t mean we will stop, if we reach into the 70% of the population, which DOH requires, we will continue, until all will get vaccinated,” says Matibag, after Southern Leyte got the 78% herd immunity.
