Parañaque City Mayor Edwin Olivarez said the city is preparing to inoculate 5,400 residents in June once a steady supply of COVID-19 vaccines becomes available, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

In an interview on DZMM, Olivarez said that they target to vaccinate 5,400 residents everyday to reach about 150,000 a month.  

“Iyong six months hanggang November aabutin tayo ng 900,000 kasama na rin po yung second dose para makuha natin yung 70 percent ng atin pong herd immunity (In the span of six months, we’ll reach 900,000 including the second dose to achieve the herd immunity of 70 percent),” he said.

Metro Manila mayors are looking to conduct a mass inoculation against COVID-19 in June as part of the target to achieve herd immunity in areas with a high attack rate such as the National Capital Region (NCR).

Previously, Olivarez said that based on their simulation should they get an adequate COVID-19 vaccine supply, they can vaccinate up to 7,000 a day which is equal to 210,000 a month.

Olivarez has mentioned before that they need to vaccinate 70 percent of its 725,000 residents which is equivalent to half a million people to achieve herd immunity.

A total of 98 percent of Parañaque City health workers equalling to 8,000 both public and private, according to Olivarez, have been vaccinated and the remaining two percent have not yet availed of the vaccination.
