SORSOGON EYES 160K JABS IN ‘BAKUNAHAN, BAYANIHAN’

The provincial government of Sorsogon is targeting to vaccinate 53,586 per day from its 14 municipalities and one city during the three-day inoculation campaign.

Governor Chiz Escudero directed all mayors to fully support the vaccination rollout and encourage all government offices, agencies and local government units (LGUs) to assign and allow all their health care workers to participate from November 29 to December 1.

Executive Order (EO) No. 32-2021 provided guidelines on the activities for the “Bakunahan, Bayanihan” national vaccination days.

“The provincial government of Sorsogon fully supports this endeavor and aims to guide its operation in the province.”

“The provincial government of Sorsogon fully supports this endeavor and aims to guide its operation in the province, having earlier issued guidelines on the ramping up of vaccination activities locally,” the EO said.

As of November 23, Sorsogon has vaccinated 60 percent of its target population or 356,433 individuals.

“We started getting our fair share of vaccines in October.”

“We will reach 65 percent full vaccination of our population by mid-December since we started getting our fair share of vaccines in October, or less than three months ago,” Escudero said.

When the vaccine rollout started in Metro Manila in March and until September, Sorsogon received just 5,000 doses per month from the national government.

The allotment increased in October to 50,000 doses every two weeks.

The province has 51 active COVID-19 cases as of November 23.
