Davao City Covid-19 Task Force Spokesperson Dr. Michelle Schlosser over the Davao City Disaster Radio Program “Bida Bakunado” on Friday said that efforts of the city councilors and the Office of Vice Mayor Sebastian “Baste” Duterte is much appreciated especially since the SP-led vaccination targets herd immunity in barangays, particularly in Covid-19 risk areas.
“Ang reason why atong good councilors dili nila gina-stop ang mobile vaccination kay ang ilang tumong gyud is for the critical risk barangays maka-achieve dayon og herd immunity. In that way, maka-assure ta ba nga protected gyud sila labaw na tong persistent ang number sa cases (The very reason why our good councilors are continuously conducting the mobile vaccination is for critical risk barangays to achieve herd immunity. In that way, we are assured that they are protected, especially those with a persistent number of cases),” Schlosser said.
She added that going to the grassroots level and ensuring the barangays reach herd immunity is helping the city achieve the target herd immunity.
Schlosser said the city has already reached 67.6 per cent of the first dose to herd immunity or 811, 410 vaccinated for first done and 56.68 per cent to herd immunity or 680,144 vaccinated individuals for the second dose or fully vaccinated.
Schlosser was hopeful that with the available supply of vaccines more will be vaccinated and the city will reach its 1.2 million Dabawenyos targetted for inoculation and achieve herd immunity. CIO
