The government has extended the November 29 to December 1, 2021 nationwide vaccination drive until December 3, an official from the COVID-19 task force said Thursday.

“In-extend ito hanggang Biyernes, hanggang bukas, so para ho dun sa mga nagnanais pang magpabakuna, patuloy po tayong nagbabakuna,” said  National Task Force (NTF) Against COVID-19 spokesperson Restituto Padilla in a radio interview.

(This has been extended until tomorrow, Friday, so we will continue to vaccinate those who stil want to be vaccinated.)

A similar three-day vaccination event is also being planned for the middle of December, Padilla added. The task force earlier mentioned the dates December 15 to 17, 2021.

According to Padilla, over 5 million jabs were administered on the first two days of the nationwide vaccination drive dubbed Bayanihan, Bakunahan National COVID-19 Vaccination Days.

“Hinihintay lang namin yung official count para sa ikatlong araw [We’re just waiting for the official count for the third day],” he said.

The government aims to vaccinate some nine million Filipinos — down from an earlier target of 15 million — during the three-day period.

Around 8,000 vaccination sites have been activated, while 20,000 volunteers , including those from the uniformed service, have been tapped.

The vaccination drive covers the general population, minors aged 12-17 years old, and booster shots for healthcare workers, senior citizens, and immunocompromised.   —KBK, GMA News
