A total of 232,289 individuals have received their Covid-19 vaccination certificates, Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Eduardo Año said on Monday night.
Those who got their vaccination certificates all applied through the VaxCertPH platform.
Speaking to President Rodrigo Duterte during his Talk to the People, Año said this figure is equivalent to 63.06 percent out of a total of 368,386 individuals who have filed their applications.
“We will continue to improve our performance in terms of distribution rating percentage,” he added in Filipino.
Launched in September, the VaxCertPH is the country’s digital documentation system that handles the issuance of Covid-19 vaccination certificates.
Currently, overseas Filipino workers and those traveling abroad are being prioritized in the issuance of Covid-19 vaccination certificates.
Año said applying for a Covid-19 vaccination certificate is free of charge.
Fully vaccinated persons can easily register through the VaxCertPH website vaxcert.doh.gov.ph“And if you are applying in satellite booths in villages, cities, or towns, just make sure to bring your LGU vaccine card and government-issued ID,” he added in Filipino.
