Mandaluyong City announced it has achieved population protection against the dreaded coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).

Mayor Carmelita Abalos said the city has vaccinated 325,188, equivalent to 100.01 percent of its target eligible population.

The city had an initial goal of 70 percent vaccination from among its 464,467 residents.

"We're happy to announce that we've reached our target this early. Our next goal is to complete the remaining second dose for those who have yet to receive it," Abalos said in a press statement.

Abalos’ report also showed that about 205.07 percent or 31,257 of the city's elderly have been vaccinated, with 25,597 already with full doses as of July 28.

Based on the Office for Senior Citizens Affairs data, there are 29,749 registered elderly in Mandaluyong.

Abalos credited the city's successful vaccination drive to the strong partnership of the local government with the private sector as well as the cooperation of every Mandaleño.

"This is the accomplishment not only of the city government but of every Mandaleño who were inoculated, thinking not only of their own safety but of their families and communities as well," she said.
