According to Senator Richard Gordon in an interview, he will have a meeting with Pfizer representatives regarding the procurement of its vaccines.
Asked if the meeting is about the PRC planning to buy its own vaccines against COVID-19, he said: “That’s right. The first plan of the Red Cross is to vaccinate like we do with measles, tumutulong kami sa (we help) Department of Health, at saka sa polio (and also with polio).”
Gordon also added that he had already spoken with the ambassador of the UK in the Philippines so that the PRC can be provided with AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccines.
The initial target of the PRC is to procure one million vials of the vaccines, said Gordon.
