Dr. Zenit also said that the municipalities with low vaccination results are Bacacay, Malilipot, Sto. Domingo, Daraga, Rapu-Rapu, Camalig, Guinobatan, Pio Duran, Oas, Polangui, and Libon.

She said the next municipality targeted in the augmentation vaccination program is the Municipality of Camalig under Mayor Carlos Erwin Baldo.
