“The Philippine National Police has now fully vaccinated almost 74% of our total force against Covid-19”, Eleazar said.

About 73.98% or 164,787 of PNP personnel are fully protected with the required vaccine doses against the coronavirus disease while 22.46% or 50,019 personnel have received their first doses.

“With these numbers, only 3.56% or 7,937 personnel are yet to receive the vaccines. Sa patuloy na pagdating ng mga bakunang binili ng gobyerno, umaasa ako na sa susunod na mga araw ay bakunado na ang buong hanay ng pulisya,” Eleazar said.

“Malaking tulong ang bakuna kontra Covid-19 lalo na sa ating mga pulis na nasa frontline, kaya naman tayo ay nagpupursige upang lahat ay mabigyan ng dagdag proteksyon laban sa nakamamatay na virus,” Eleazar added. (ai/mtvn)
