MANILA – The PinasLakas campaign has administered 3,456,132 first booster doses on its 100th day, Oct. 8, the Department of Health said Tuesday.

The campaign also vaccinated 47,803 senior citizens against Covid-19.

As of Oct. 10, almost 73.3 million Filipinos have been fully vaccinated.

Of the tally, 6.9 million are senior citizens; 10 million are adolescents; and 5.1 million are children.

Almost 20.2 million have received their first dose and more than 3.1 million have received their second booster shot.

The DOH urges the eligible population to receive their booster doses to address the country's waning immunity especially now that increased mobility is seen nationwide. (PNA)
