The PinasLakas campaign makes vaccines more accessible and available in public markets, places of worship, malls, transport terminals, offices, factories, plazas and schools.

As of Aug. 1, the DOH said more than 71.7 million Filipinos have been fully vaccinated.

More than 16.2 million individuals have received their first booster dose and more than 1.3 million got their second booster shot. (PNA)
