90 percent health workers in San Jose Del Monte vaccinated




At least 90 percent of medical workers in San Jose del Monte in Bulacan have already been vaccinated.

Latest data from the city government’s public information office showed that as of 6 April, 3,459 out of the 3,895 health workers 0r 88.81 percent of the target, have received their vaccines.

They were administered with either the China-made Sinovac or the UK’s AstraZeneca vaccines.

The city has also vaccinated 100 percent of the 220 targeted people with co-morbidities under the A3 category who have earlier registered to get to the vaccine.

The PIO said it will update its A3 list as more registrants have signified their interest to get the vaccine.

The city has also resumed vaccinating the targeted 22,039 senior citizens who have registered to get the jabs.

The national government had previously halted the use of AstraZeneca for seniors following safety issues raised against the UK brand.

Meanwhile, San Jose del Monte Rep. Florida Robes said while the city is targeting 70 percent inoculation of its around 1 million residents to achieve herd immunity, the city will do its best to vaccinate all its residents to ensure that all are protected.

“No San Joseño should be left behind in this vaccination drive and we will work hard to achieve that for the people of San Jose. We are aiming for 100 percent vaccination! This is the only way for us to move forward from this pandemic,” Robes said in a press statement.
