Mabalacat City on Friday set the record for the highest vaccination rate in Central Luzon and is on track for achieving herd immunity by mid-November, officials said.

As of Friday, some 180,770 individuals comprising 87.97 percent of the eligible population for vaccination in the city have received their first dose, while 123,061, or 66.52 percent, are fully inoculated against Covid-19.

The 70 percent target population for herd immunity in Mabalacat is 198,001.

In a Punto Central Luzon report, Mabalacat City Mayor Crisostomo Garbo expressed his optimism that the city will attain its herd immunity by mid-November.

The mayor also said that the national government will provide more vaccines to continue to ramp up the vaccination program in the city.

“This is the result of our collective efforts ng LGU, city council, CRIS program, frontliners, our barangay officials, and constituents in ensuring that we follow the guidelines set by our city government to speed up our vaccination program,” Garbo was quoted as saying.

“And since the national government has learned about the effectiveness and ramping up of our vaccination program, they have pledged to supply us additional vaccines for our city,” he added.
