COVID-19 VACCINATION – According to Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, over 3 million Filipinos had gotten vaccinated against COVID-19.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the presence of a vaccine puts countries a step closer in regaining control. Because of vaccines, countries across the globe are slowly opening borders and reviving the economy.

Meanwhile, the Philippines still has a long way to go before achieving its goal of vaccinating 70% of the population by the end of 2021. However, with more vaccines coming into the country, the government is hopeful that the goal would be met.
