The local government is hopeful that it will soon attain herd immunity even as total Covid-19 vaccinations in San Pablo City have already reached 57,953 since vaccinations started in the city on March 15.

MORE than 50,000 residents in San Pablo City have received their Covid-19 vaccine, the city government announced Tuesday (July 20).

The city information office said total Covid-19 vaccinations in the city have reached 57,953 since vaccinations started in the city on March 15, based on data released by the local health office.

Of these, 13,699 have received their second dose and can now be considered as “fully vaccinated.”

Sinovac vaccines constituted the bulk of Covid-19 vaccines administered in San Pablo City with 24,272 doses administered, followed by AstraZeneca (16,927 doses), Pfizer (16,273 doses) and Gamaleya/Sputnik V (581 doses).

Mayor Loreto Amante said at least 70 percent of the total population of the city, or 210,000 of 285,000 residents, need to be vaccinated in order to achieve herd immunity against the coronavirus.

“Makakamit lang ang herd immunity kung ang malaking bahagi ng populasyon ay mabakunahan laban sa corona virus at makapag-develop ng protective antibodies laban sa future infection,” the city government said.
