Mabalacat ends 2021 w/ 437K jabs administered
The Mabalacat City government (MCG) capped 2021 with 437, 209 total COVID-19 jabs administered, according to officials.
According to figures from the city’s Covid-19 Response Integrated System (CRIS), the local government has administered a total of 219,488 jabs for the first dose, 206,226 for the second dose, and 11,495 for its booster shots program.
Mabalacat City Mayor Crisostomo Garbo said the numbers represent the inoculation of the city’s priority sectors, walk-in (residents and non-residents), missed second dose, and the pediatric population aged 12 to 17 years old.
“Hindi po tumigil ang ating siyudad sa pagbabakuna. Kahit noong pasko ay tuluy-tuloy po ang ating mga medical frontline workers sa pagbabakuna sa ating vaccination sites gaya ng nasa SM City Clark,” the mayor said.
“Ngayong parating na taon ay paiigtingin pa natin ang ating vaccination program lalo na sa booster shots,” he said.
“Ang Department of Health (DOH) ay naglabas na ng kautusan ukol sa mas-pinaikling interval ng administration ng booster shots sa mga fully-vaccinated individuals,” Garbo added.
