The number of Covid-19 vaccine jabs administered in the Philippines has breached 30 million, Malacañang reported on Monday.

In a virtual presser, Palace spokesman Harry Roque announced that 30,389,160 vaccine doses had been deployed nationwide.

According to Roque, 17,258,675 individuals have been inoculated with their first vaccine doses, while 13,130,485 have already completed their Covid-19 vaccination.

The country has received 48,522,890 Covid-19 vaccines doses from different manufacturers.

The vaccination milestone was celebrated during the “30M Jabs and Counting” event held at SM City San Mateo in Rizal.

Roque said there was nothing wrong with the government mounting events to commemorate vaccination milestones.

“Wala pong masama na binibigyan natin ng importansiya ang mga milestone, hindi naman po kami pumupunta sa mga ganitong mga activities na wala po tayong milestone na kinikilala. Because taking note of this milestone is a way of encouraging people na magpabakuna na rin,” he said.

Rizal is under general community quarantine with heightened restrictions. John Ezekiel J. Hirro
