DUMAGUETE CITY - The provincial government of Negros Oriental is continuing its inoculation efforts against coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) even after the initial nationwide massive vaccination campaign.
Assistant Provincial Health Officer Dr. Liland Estacion, in a virtual presser Tuesday afternoon, said the province still has about 41,000 doses of Moderna, Pfizer, and Sinovac vaccines.
The local government units (LGUs) have received their own vaccine allocation, she said.
Estacion, the Covid-19 incident commander of the province's Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID), said the three-day massive vaccination drive that was held last week across the country was successful in the province.
She, however, could not yet give the actual number of people who received the vaccine while awaiting reports from the LGUs.
Estacion said the provincial mobile vaccination team has lined up out-of-town schedules to assist the LGUs in the vaccination rollout.
She noted the schedule as follows: Pamplona, Dec. 6; mega vaccination center at the Macias Sports Complex here, Dec. 7; Canlaon City and Vallehermoso, Dec. 8; Basay and Mabinay, Dec. 9; Bacong, Ayungon and Sto.
