MANILA, Philippines — The Manila city government recorded a new all-time high of 44,570 vaccine doses administered on Saturday.

“We have reached another all-time high vaccination record in a single day,” Mayor Isko Moreno said.

The figure was higher than the 44,077 vaccines administered on July 20 and 43,011 doses on July 5, according to Moreno.

City hall said the vaccination on Saturday catered mostly to recipients of second doses, adding 41,559 fully vaccinated individuals in Manila.

The local government also launched a drive-through vaccination site at the Quirino Grandstand. At least 400 slots were offered on Saturday during the launch.

Manila has administered a total of 1,328,713 vaccine doses as of Saturday.
