Fernando said 749,375 Bulakenyos had received their first dose, while 652,158 individuals were fully vaccinated including the 240 individuals who received the second dose at Xentro Mall in the City of Malolos on September 28, and the 500 individuals inoculated for the second dose at Primark Center in Barangay Banga 1st, Plaridel on Friday, October 1.
He said the number of doses administered by the PHO came from the 1,675,118 COVID-19 vaccines the provincial government received from the national government from the first week of March to September 27.

The PHO reported on Sunday, Oct. 3 that COVID-19 cases in Bulacan are at 72,166. There were 257 new recovered patients that brought the total number of recoveries to 69,453. The PHO said there was no new death recorded and the total fatalities are still at 1,307.
Fernando said the active cases continue to decline, from 1,924 active cases reported on September 28 to 1,540 on October 2. On Sunday, Oct. 3, the active cases in the province had gone down to 1,406.

Fernando urged the still unvaccinated Bulakenyos to get their COVID shots and not to be complacent because Bulacan is still facing a high hospital occupancy rate.
He requested the Bulacan Philippine National Police to continue to remind the public to follow the minimum public health standards such as the wearing of face masks and face shields, as well as to practice social distancing.
