The COVAX Facility is expected to deliver in May millions of doses of COVID-19 vaccines by British firm AstraZeneca and US company Pfizer, vaccine czar Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr. said on Wednesday.
“Maganda po ang volumes this coming May dahil may positive na nangyari na yung COVAX baka makapagdeliver ng Pfizer at Astrazeneca,” Galvez said in a Cabinet briefing presided by President Rodrigo Duterte.
“‘Yung second dose wala na po tayong problema. May makukuha tayong more or less na two million AstraZeneca,” Galvez added.
Galvez said he expected the government to receive 1.3 million vaccine doses of Pfizer vaccines also in May.
The Philippines has so far administered 2,065,245 vaccine doses as of May 4. Over 1.7 million Filipinos were inoculated with the first dose of vaccines. —NB, GMA News
