MANILA, Philippines — Taguig has administered 1,015,029 doses of COVID-19 vaccines as of Tuesday, Sept. 7, the city announced in a Facebook post.

It has thus become the fourth city — after Quezon City, Manila, and Caloocan — to breach the one-million-mark in the number of COVID-19 doses administered to its citizens.

“Taguig City attributes this milestone to the hard work of every healthcare and essential worker in the City who has largely contributed to contact tracing, vaccination efforts, and Taguig’s continuous implementation of the Prevent-Detect-Isolate-Treat-Reintegrate (PDITR) strategy versus COVID-19,” the Facebook statement reads.

The statement added that the city would continue to focus on community-based vaccination through the Taguig Mobile Vaccination Bus, Mobile Vaccination Team, and Home Service Vaccination for bedridden citizens.
