The Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office has reported that 84 percent of its personnel have been administered booster shots of COVID-19 vaccines.

PLt. Abegael Donasco, NOCPPO deputy spokesperson, reported that 2,047 of the 2,434 police personnel assigned in the province have already received COVID-19 booster shots, which is equivalent to 84 percent.

The remaining 387 are expected to get booster shots soon, while there are six police personnel, who are lactating mothers and pregnant, who waived their rights to be vaccinated, Donasco said.

Since 2020, 268 NOCPPO personnel were infected by COVID-19, of which 266 already recovered and returned to their respective duties, she added.

NOCCPO also had two casualties due to COVID-19 infection, police records show.

Donasco reported that NOCPPO recorded zero COVID-19 cases in the past several days.

But the PNP Health Service is encouraging police personnel to receive COVID-19 vaccine booster shots for their needed protection as front-liners.

PBrig. Gen. Archival Macala, Police Regional Office 6 deputy director for Administration, who was accorded with honors by NOCPPO personnel headed PCol. Leo Pamittan during his visit yesterday at Camp Alfredo Montelibano Sr. in Bacolod City, stressed the importance of COVID-19 booster shots to police frontliners.*
