Baguio to name Top 20 best, worst performing villages vs. Covid
BAGUIO CITY – The city government will start naming villages that are exerting effort and those that are not performing well in terms of convincing residents to be jabbed against the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19)
“We will be having a dashboard posting the top 20 barangays with the top booster doses. And unfortunately, we also have to post the 20 with the lowest booster doses,” Dr. Celia Flor Brillantes, the assistant city health officer, said on Tuesday.
She said there will be a daily countdown of booster doses that will be made public to let the people know the vaccination rate in their communities.
“Our toll order from the city health officer is to do 500 booster vaccines a day,” she said.
Brilllantes said the city has been trying to convince the people to have a booster shot, adding that the local government aims for a 100-percent or booster vaccine accomplishment or higher, the same as fully vaccinated, which has reached over 105 percent.
She said they used to do 200 vaccinations a day.
“We can do that if we do it six days and in the next 10 weeks, that will give us 30,000 booster doses before October 8 increasing the booster doses from 51 to 61 percent,” she added.
“We have not laid low, we were not waiting for people to come to the vax areas, but we have been utilizing the mobile vaccination teams from district jab sites to mobile groups to the big vaccination sites,” Brillantes said. **Liza Agoot
