Aside from those who got their first booster, around 13,450 people living in the city were able to secure their second booster shot, Cebu City Health Department chief Dr. Jeffrey Ibones said on Friday, July 29, 2022.

For children ages 12 to 17, 76,472 of them have gotten their first dose; 68,535 others have gotten their second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine; and 1,801 in the same age group have been vaccinated with their first booster shot, Ibones said.

Ibones further said that they are still holding vaccination across the city to ensure that all of the residents will be protected against Covid-19. The city has Covid-19 vaccination sites at the City Hall and at Ayala Center Cebu in Cebu Business Park.

Aside from their vaccination sites, Ibones added that they are also bringing their “Toktok Bakuna” campaigns to other areas in the city to bring Covid-19 vaccination closer to their constituents.(PAC / JKV)
