THE Cagayan de Oro City Health Office has called on Kagay-anons to secure their booster shots.
According to City Health Office Chief Dr. Rachel Dilla, not all vaccinated persons have developed resistance as it depends on how their bodies respond.
"Mao na ang rason ngano mohatag ta og booster shots kay motaas imong level of antibodies," Dilla said.
Dr. Ina Grace Chiu, immunization program coordinator of the City Health Office, said it would be a waste if Kagay-anons do not get boosted shots, especially when the city has been experiencing a spike in Covid-19 cases.
"Ang pagbakuna, dili lang nato giprotektahan atong kaugalingon kon dili atong pamilya og silingan," Chiu said.
The data from City Health Office showed that as of 10 p.m. on July 28, Cagayan de Oro City recorded 22 new cases and seven recovered Covid-positive patients.
This brought the cumulative Covid-19 cases since March 2020 to 26,180, and the total recoveries to 25,137.
The city's total active cases were now 99, of which 24 were admitted to the Northern Mindanao Medical Center and other hospitals in the city, and 64 were at the city's temporary treatment and monitoring facility.
On July 27, the city logged 28 new Covid cases with 24 recoveries.
