PH to Get 10M New COVID-19 Vaccine Doses from COVAX

Tuesday, September 13, the World Health Organization announced that the COVAX Facility will provide 10 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine to the Philippines.

The new batch will come on top of the 13 million doses the global initiative, co-led by the WHO, had already sent, per Dr. Rabindra Abeyasinghe.

According to a WHO representative, “We are looking at increasing vaccine allocations to the Philippines. We expect larger consignments to come within this third and fourth quarters.”

Dr. Rabindra said the additional doses could arrive in the coming weeks, as the country continues to battle a fresh wave of record-high infections driven by the Delta variant.

Vaccines sent by the COVAX Facility to the country are AstraZeneca at 4.58 million doses, Johnson & Johnson at 3.2 million, Moderna at 3 million, and Pfizer at 2.66 million.
