Vax program to help address pandemic-related unemployment

According to Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) Governor Benjamin Diokno, the increase in the number of vaccinated individuals is critical to addressing unemployment caused by the pandemic. Due to the Delta variant, the unemployment rate rose from 6.9% in July to 8.1% in August. Diokno set half of the population as the target number for vaccinated individuals before this year ends. He explained that reaching this number will allow the continuation of economic activities and increase confidence, allowing for the reopening and generation of more jobs.
