AT LEAST 2.4 million individuals are fully vaccinated in Davao Region, leaving only 22.2 percent of the total population as the remaining target.

As of January 6, 2022, the latest data of the Department of Health-Davao Center for Health Development (DOH-DCHD) showed that 2,447,358 people or 65.1 percent are fully vaccinated, with either two doses or one complete dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.

“For the fully vaccinated, we are already at 65.1 percent (with) Davao City at 88.9 percent,” said Dr. Janis Olavides, focal person of DOH-DCHD Covid-19 Vaccination Program, during a virtual presser.

Davao City had the highest number of fully vaccinated individuals with 1,155,778 or 88.9 percent, followed by Davao Oriental with 250,623 or 58.9 percent.

“In totality, we want them to reach 70 percent of the total population, we are to vaccinate 836,410 individuals and that is 22.2 percent,” said Olavides.

To reach the targeted 70 percent, Davao City needs to administer 57,457 vaccines, or 4.4 percent.

“Right now, we have started vaccinating booster doses for the rest of the added population,” Olavides said.
