The number of fully vaccinated Filipinos is nearing the one million mark as of May 24, testing czar Vivencio “Vince” Dizon said on Tuesday.

In a Palace briefing, Dizon said 986,929 individuals had completed their two-shot vaccinations, while 3,318,646 Filipinos had received their first doses against Covid-19.

Dizon cited data from the National Vaccination Operations Center.

In total, 4,305,575 vaccine doses have been administered, Dizon said.

The Philippines has received 8,279,050 Covid-19 doses.

Of the total, 5.5 million were Sinovac doses, 2.55 million were AstraZeneca doses, 193,050 were Pfizer doses and 30,000 were Sputnik V doses.

More doses are expected to arrive next month, including about four million more AstraZeneca and Pfizer shots and 300,000 Moderna doses. John Ezekiel J. Hirro
