The Department of Health (DOH) 10 (Northern Mindanao) said Monday it is targeting at least one million inoculations in Northern Mindanao within 100 days.

Dr. Jose Llacuna Jr., DOH-10 director, said the move is part of the national mandate of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. for his first 100 days in office.

“I would like to assure you, we have sufficient vaccine (supply). In fact, we have more than what we needed,” Llacuna said.

He said the new vaccination drive is part of the national program under “PinasLakas”.

The one million target is 50 percent of the region’s general population, set as minimum figures.

As of July 24, only 514,797 out of the 1.53 million target population have been inoculated.

Dr. Emma Pilar Imperio, DOH-10 Family Health Cluster Medical Officer, also said within 100 days, at least 90 percent or 65,304 of the target population of senior citizens must be inoculated.

“In the region, 280,577 out of 345,881 senior citizens were already inoculated,” Imperio said.

In Northern Mindanao, at least 3.15 million have been fully vaccinated out of its 4.13 million overall target population. (PNA)
