"Let's get the vaccine. Let us not be doubtful. Let's give that confidence," DOH Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire told reporters, as she responded to queries about Indonesia, where 350 fully vaccinated health workers still contracted the disease.
Reuters reported that most of the workers who tested positive were asymptomatic and only a few needed hospitalization. While 350 vaccinated medical workers in Indonesia caught COVID-19, the number could still be insignificant, said Vergeire.
"Hindi po natin maikakaila na may breakthrough infections... pero kailangan pa din po natin ng kumpletong datos para ma-analyze ng maigi," she said.(We cannot deny that there are breakthrough infections... but we need to complete the data so we can analyze it well.) headtopics.com
If Indonesia has 5,000 health workers, then 350 is just 7 percent, so the Sinovac jab is still 93 percent effective, she said.While the data remains incomplete, Filipinos should avoid doubting the effectiveness of the jab, the Undersecretary added.Vaccine manufacturers have yet to submit data on the effectiveness of their jabs against new COVID-19 variants, that are known to be more contagious than the original strain, Vergeire said.
The Philippines has been mainly using Sinovac vaccines in its inoculation program.So far, the "overall percentage for adverse events" in the Philippines remain at 0.68 percent, the DOH official said.These individuals reported experiencing chills, fever, fatigue, nausea and pain in the injection site after being vaccinated, she said.
"Wala pa rin po tayong kaso ng adverse events which have direct causality with the vaccine," she said.(We have yet to record adverse events which have direct causality with the vaccine.)As of June 17, of the 14.2 million COVID-19 vaccine doses in the country, 9 million are from Sinovac.
The Philippines is also using COVID-19 jabs from AstraZeneca, Gamaleya, and Pfizer. Read more: ABS-CBN News »

tracing the raw material of said vaccine should be tantamount to tracking any purpose with the virus. was it meant to overwhelm the christian hongkong people? there was info that 50 thousand tons of brown sugar were smuggled from brazil at the height of the pandemic Get another brand for booster They are very clear about this when u get vaccinated with ANY vaccine. The vaccine is NOT A CURE. You can still get the virus. The only difference is, you will not die if you do. So same protocols should be practiced.
I blame media for fear in people not wanting to get vaccinated. You already run a news scaring people yesterday. Ang magsabi ulit 'di nila kasalanan mga variants na lumalabas' sana mag ka covid-19 Mga hinayupak kayo! Ipilit nyo pa yang galingChina. Me karma, lalo aa mga susunod ne henerasyon. Lalo sa kabilang buhay.
DOH Vergeire says- 'If Indonesia has 5,000 health workers, then 350 is just 7 percent, so the Sinovac jab is still 93 percent effective.' So if 5M is vaccinated & 350,000 still gets infected, can you still consider Sinovac as effective? Happy Birthday Dr. Jose Rizal! 🇵🇭
