263,580 Negrenses fully vaccinated

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

Provincial Incident Management Team head Zeaphard Caelian reported yesterday that 263,580 Negrenses have already been fully vaccinated, as of Sept. 1.

Caelian however said that 79,910 more Negrenses are waiting for their second dose.

Caelian said they are targeting 70 percent of the 1,825,000 population of the province to be vaccinated to reach herd immunity.

At the same time, Caelian said he also appreciates the willingness of many residents in Negros Occidental to have themselves vaccinated, as shown by the increasing number of people lining up in vaccination centers in different local government units.

“They see the need to have themselves and their families protected especially now when there is a spread of the highly infectious Delta variant in the Philippines,” he added.

Caelian said that they are expecting the arrival of additional COVID-19 vaccines for Negros Occidental.*
