DOH’s Bayanihan Bakunahan to vaccinate 1M pax in R12

KIDAPAWAN CITY, North Cotabato (PIA)—The Department of Health-Center for Health Development Soccsksargen Region, through the three-day National COVID-19 Vaccination, targets to vaccinate a total of 935,688 unvaccinated individuals in Region 12.

During the press conference held in Kidapawan City on Monday, Dr. Edvir Jane Montañer, regional immunization program manager of the DOH-CHD XII said the three-day activity tagged as 'Bayanihan Bakunahan' is an effort of the national government to bring together stakeholders to facilitate vaccination of those individuals with zero dose of COVID-19 vaccine.  

“Nationwide po ito, so it means all the 16 regions including BARMM. Simultaneously, it would be conducted to these 17 regions,” the DOH-CHD official said adding that the national government targets to vaccinate around 15 million unvaccinated Filipinos for the three-day national COVID-19 vaccination.

The Bayanihan Bakunahan will start on November 29 until December 1.

Montañer expressed optimism that by devoting three days solely for vaccination activities, herd immunity can be easily achieved.

As of November 22, fully vaccinated individuals in the region are 889,228. On the other hand, there are 1,175,062 individuals who already got their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

Meanwhile, Dr. Sulpicio Henry Legaspi, assistant regional director of DOH CHD-XII, called on volunteers to take part in the activity. He said the DOH is in need of volunteers for its vaccination and data management teams.
