Press Release/November 30, 2021

According to the Department of Health (DOH) - Vaccine Operation Reporting System (VORS) CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon) has surpassed its daily target or realistic target of 340,000 vaccinees by recording a total of 353,140 (103.8) jabs given during the first day of the 3-day National Vaccination Day as of 12 midnight of November 29, 2021.

CALABARZON is followed by region 3 with a total 299,487 and Region 7 with 190,250 individuals vaccinated.

“These figures only shows that people are already acknowledging the importance of Covid vaccines to their health. Mas maraming taong mababakunahan, mas magiging protektado ang ating mamamayan laban sa Covid virus,” Regional Director Ariel I. Valencia stated.  

He added that the region averages about 100,000 vaccinations per day. “We have set a realistic goal of at least 340,000 vaccinees daily during the 3-day NVD in order to cover all the unvaccinated eligible populations in the provinces, especially those in GIDA communities.”

“We are hoping to surpass our accomplishment from day 1 and double the figure to be able to reach our target of 70% for the herd immunity. Today is holiday and more eligible individuals have the time to go to their nearest vaccination sites and get their jabs. Those that may not be able to go to the designated vax centers, mayroon naman tayong mga mobile vaccination center na maglilibot upang sila ay mabigyan ng bakuna,” he assured.

Valencia continues conducting rounds and has visited LGUs in Laguna today to personally witness the conduct of vaccination activities in the province. He will be visiting island municipalities in the province of Quezon tomorrow particularly, the island towns of Alabat and Perez.

“We have provided ample supply of vaccines to cover the target population in our island towns,” he ensured.
