Earlier today, the Municipal Health Office (MHO) received four hundred (400) doses of Sinovac from the Department of Health (DOH).
Augmenting the municipality’s inventory of Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines, Camalig now has a total of eight hundred and eighty (880) vaccine doses which are set to initially cater “priority group A” comprised of frontline health workers, senior citizens, indigent residents, and uniformed personnel.
The vaccination team under the Local Task Force for COVID-19 Vaccine Deployment (LTFCVD) officially launched the municipal-wide vaccine rollout last April 16, 2021 at the Camalig National High School main vaccination center – 80 frontliners have so far been inoculated.
To ensure public health and safety, both staff and vaccinees are directed to strictly follow minimum public health standards set by DOH.
The vaccine rollout in Camalig, Albay is expected to cater 45,000 of the targeted population with the end goal of achieving herd immunity to finally put an end to the transmission of COVID-19.
As of May 1, 2021, the municipality has a total of 49 confirmed COVID-19 cases including 33 recoveries, 4 deaths, and 12 active.
