OVER eight million individuals were inoculated with the Covid-19 vaccines in the three-day "Bayanihan, Bakunahan" national vaccination days from November 29 to December 1, 2021, health undersecretary Myrna Cabotaje said Friday, December 3.

Based on the Vaccine Operation Reporting System as of 6 a.m. Friday, a total of 8,014,751 individuals were jabbed or 89.06 percent of the committed target.

On November 29, a total of 2,709,344 vaccine doses were administered; November 30 with 2,475,479 doses; and December 1 with 2,829,928 doses.

The Philippines targeted to inoculate nine million Filipinos in the three-day drive but failed to reach its quota based on recent data. However, voluntary extension of vaccination days was allowed until Friday, December 3.

Cabotaje said the top-performing regions based on the cumulative number of jabs were Calabarzon, Central Luzon and Central Visayas. The regions accounted for a third of the eight million jabs administered.

Cebu province ranked first in the top-performing provinces, followed by Negros Occidental and Cavite.

"Nagpapasalamat tayo sa mga tumulong sa bakunahan," Cabotaje said.

(We thank everyone who helped in the vaccination.)
