In the last four days, Bohol teams vaccinating against the dreaded coronavirus disease (Covid-19) averaged 3,808 jabs, as they added over 7,000 to the number of Boholanos getting full protection against the disease.
And as the local stash of ready vaccines, continue to be dispensed, there has not been any fresh deliveries of vaccines, at least data from the Bohol Inter-Agency task Force on the management of Emerging Infectious Diseases, in its Covid-19 Report, would show.
Form February 6 to March 4, Bohol has received 1,449,142 vaccine doses, some 1,360,814 of these have been inoculated already, leaving Bohol with some 88,323 vaccine doses on hand.
With the vaccinations, some 7,283 Boholanos from priority groups and its essential sectors have been afforded full protection when they receive their second doses of the vaccine until March 3.
Last February 28, BIATF bared that about 637,043 have received two doses, while by its March 4 report, the number has reached 644,326, as of the day before.
For those who have been given their initial doses, BIATF’s record shows 650,532 Boholanos initially inoculated by the second to the last day of February.
This number increased by 4,785 on March 3, the new count for those with the first dose now reaching 655,317.
As to those who had their booster shots, from 58,004 last February 27, it has reached 61,171, as of March 3.
In totality, two days before the province-wide vaccination against Covid would be a full year, Bohol has still accomplished 58.28% of its target or vaccination 70% of its population to achieve herd immunity.
To date, Bohol has about 88,328 doses of vaccines in its cold storage facilities and are ready to be dispensed in the next few days.
Form February 6, until March 4, the BIATF has not updated its data on the number of vaccine doses it received, which should mean that it has not received any more vaccines, in at least a month. (rahc/PIA-7/Bohol)
