Robes: Night vaccination for workers, house-to-house jabs implemented in Bulacan town
By Billy Begas
San Jose Del Monte City Rep. Florida Robes on Wednesday disclosed that her city has vaccinated 82.89% of its target population.
As of January 11, Robes said some 375,278 of San Jose del Monte’s target population are now fully vaccinated against COVID-19 while almost 50,000 have received their first dose. More than 38,000 have received their booster shot.
“Mayor Arthur Robes has implemented ways to push up vaccination. We have night vaccination for workers and we go house-to-house to reach those who are unable to travel to our vaccination sites. Because of this, we are able to achieve 82.89 percent vaccination. Only around 30,000 of our residents are unvaccinated and we are working hard to reach them so that all of us will be protected,” Robes.
On January 12, San Jose Del Monte City recorded 157 new cases bringing its total active cases to 1,375.
Robes also called on the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases to conduct another round of massive vaccination drive amid the exponential increase in COVID-19 cases.
“We need to have another massive vaccination drive like what we had last year when we allotted three days to ramp up inoculating at least 9 million people all over the country. The Filipino people should be given sufficient access to life-saving vaccines to give them better protection against Covid-19, especially the highly transmissible Omicron variant,” said Robes in a statement.
