Percentage-wise, Bacolod tops Region 6 vaccination

Bacolod City, percentage-wise, booked the highest record in Western Visayas in terms of meeting its target in the November 29 to December 1 National Vaccination Days dubbed “Bayanihan Bakunahan”.

Records from the Department of Health-6 showed that Bacolod City reached 72.45 percent of its target as November 30, the second day of the national campaign to fast-track the nation’s bid for herd immunity.

On Day One of “Bayanihan Bakunahan” Bacolod administered 29,047 anti-COVID-19 doses, surpassing the daily target of 22,057 set by the DOH for the local government to meet.

This was 131.69 percent compliance, way beyond the goal of the national government for Bacolod.

Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia said the sight of thousands of Bacolodnons lining up to get vaccinated in different sites was overwhelming, adding that there appears to be a turnaround from the earlier hesitancy against the COVID vaccine as noted by the Emergency Operations Center-Task Force and the COVaC.

Leonardia attributed the shift on the people’s interest to get jabbed to the consistent information and education campaign mounted by the local government through the EOC.

Bacolod opened 42 vaccination centers for the three-day national drive.

Some 19, 382 residents were inoculated on Day Two, keeping Bacolod on top of the leaderboard.

Behind Bacolod were Guimaras (49.73 percent), Antique (27.58 percent), Iloilo Province (25.36 percent), Negros Occidental (24.68 percent), Capiz (24.25 percent) and Aklan (21.00 percent).

Data for Day Three was not yet available as of press deadline.*
