The Philippines has inoculated all healthcare workers who had registered for Covid-19 vaccines under the A1 priority group, the National Task Force (NTF) Against Covid-19 said on Monday.

According to NTF chief implementer and vaccine czar Carlito Galvez, Jr., a total of 1,667,015 doses have been administered to healthcare workers as first shots, while 1,131,498 have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

“Natutuwa po kami, Mr. President, na i-report sa inyo na iyong lahat ng master listed na healthcare workers ay nabakunahan na po natin,” Galvez told President Rodrigo Duterte during the “Talk to the Nation” broadcast Monday night.

The Philippines has surpassed 10 million administered vaccine doses. Latest numbers from the NTF showed that 10,065,414 doses have been administered in the country as of June 17.

Of the A2 priority group composed of senior citizens, 2,288,221 have received their first doses while 672,602 have been fully vaccinated.

More than 2.5 million people with co-morbidities (A3 priority group) have received their initial jabs, with 710,846 completing their two-dose inoculations.

The number of fully vaccinated frontliners in essential services was 12,340. A total of 829,662 were first-dose recipients.

Galvez also said 184,125 doses have been administered for the A5 group or the poor population category as first doses.

“Pero nakita rin natin na ‘yung 10 million [jabs administered] is very small compared to our target of 70 million Filipinos to be inoculated,”Galvez said.

The country has recorded 1,403,588 Covid-19 cases as of June 28, with 24,456 fatalities and 1,327,103 recoveries. John Ezekiel J. Hirro
