The Philippines has administered 73,921,542 doses of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) vaccines, with 32,993,083 Filipinos now fully “protected” against the dreaded disease, the National Task Force (NTF) Against Covid-19 said in a report by Philippine News Agency.

Data from the NTF tracker as of November 19 also showed 40,922,002 jabs were given as first doses and 6,457 doses of the single-dose Johnson & Johnson Janssen vaccine for health care workers’ additional doses as of November 18.

The country's average daily vaccination rate in the last seven days significantly increased to 859,105 doses as against 748,839 doses during the previous week.

NTF chief implementer, Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr., earlier said the government targets to fully inoculate at least 54 million Filipinos until the end of this year to achieve population protection.

The government also aims to complete the third-dose vaccination of health care workers this year.

The Philippines has received 133,779,540 doses of Covid-19 vaccines, with 101,693,460 doses deployed across 17 regions nationwide.

Galvez said there are also pending deliveries of 11,281,700 doses, part of about 197 million coronavirus doses secured by the government, both procured and donated.
