In the Philippines, 10M Anti-Covid Vaccines Given

Philippines tops 10 million vaccine doses administered

MANILA, Philippines — After more than a year of being forced to stay home amid the pandemic, there’s now freedom on the horizon for 74-year-old Nieves Catacutan, who received yesterday the 10 millionth COVID dose administered in the country.

In an interview, Catacutan said she was overjoyed on being informed that she would get the 10 millionth jab, as she had grown tired of minding the family’s sari-sari or micro convenience store and watching teleseryes due to strict quarantine restrictions especially for senior citizens. The vaccine rollout began in March.

Health Secretary Francisco Duque III himself administered the Sinovac CoronaVac jab on Catacutan at the Valenzuela City Astrodome.

She said she now looks forward to finally getting out of the house with her grandchildren for the first time in many months.

“Masayang masaya ako dahil ako pa ang napili. Masayang masaya ako na makakapamasyal na ako (I’m so happy I got chosen, now I can go out and enjoy),” Catacutan, a Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program beneficiary, said.

At a press briefing, vaccine czar Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr. said the 10 millionth jab is a “significant milestone” for the country as the national government aims to vaccinate 10 million individuals per month and achieve population protection before December.

“We have achieved a significant milestone, (although) 10 million is still small compared to the 70 million target,” Galvez said.

At least 1.4 million individuals were vaccinated in the past week, surpassing the target of one million, Galvez added.

John 3:16-18 ESV
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son (Jesus Christ), that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
