PH administers 3.9 million COVID-19 vaccine doses from Dec. 15-21

MANILA, Philippines — The government has administered 3.9 million COVID-19 vaccine doses during the ongoing second leg of the national vaccination program dubbed “Bayanihan, Bakunahan.”

During President Rodrigo Duterte’s Talk to the People that aired late Tuesday, Health Secretary Francisco Duque III reported that 3,936,486 COVID-19 vaccine doses were injected from December 15 to December 21.


The 3.9 million data is higher than the

3.7 million earlier announced by Health Undersecretary Myrna Cabotaje

on Tuesday noon.

The government’s Bayanihan, Bakunahan II started on November 15. However, some areas only started on Monday while others are yet to kick off the vaccination activities as they are reeling from the aftermath of Typhoon Odette.
