The Palace on Thursday announced that the Philippines had fully vaccinated more than three million individuals against Covid-19.

“As of July 7, 2021, ayon sa latest national Covid-19 vaccination dashboard…3,089,976 ang fully vaccinated na,” Palace spokesman Harry Roque said in a virtual presser.

The number of fully vaccinated individuals makes up 2.83 percent of the Philippine population.

The country’s vaccination has been on a rise since July 4. From July 4 to 6, the country has tallied daily record-highs in vaccination.

“Conservative number pa po ito at inaasahan natin na tataas pa ang bilang kapag dumating na ang mga numero mula sa mga lokal na pamahalaan at pribadong sektor,” Roque said.

As of July 7, about 12,489,777 total vaccine doses have been administered throughout the country.

About 9.3 million Filipinos individuals have received their first vaccine doses.

The Philippines needs to fully vaccinate 73,234,764 more individuals to achieve herd immunity. John Ezekiel J. Hirro
