Total active cases remained at 953 while deaths at 122.

PNP chief Gen. Guillermo Eleaar attributed the marked improvement in the police Covid-19 situation to responsive healthcare and prevention, including the full vaccination of 85.6 percent of the entire 222,000-strong PNP.

On the PNP-wide vaccination rollout, a total of 374,002 doses have been administered to 218,895 PNP personnel, with 191,019 or 85.63 percent now fully-vaccinated while 27,875 or 12.50 percent awaiting the second dose.

Among the Police Regional Offices, the National Capital Region Police Office posted the highest full vaccination rate at 95.08 percent and lowest in the Davao Region at 78.48 percent.

The PNP Health Service accounted for 4,172 or 1.87 percent unvaccinated PNP personnel due to medical and other reasons. 

Eleazar said the national vaccination program is the game changer in the “whole-of-nation” response to the Covid-19 health crisis.
