“The
arrival of these vaccines could not have occurred at a more opportune
time considering the continued rise in cases, which in turn increases
the need to inoculate more high-risk individuals as soon as possible,”
Philippine Health Secretary Francisco Duque said.

MANILA,

Health Secretary Francisco Duque said the Philippines is “grateful for the arrival of additional donated vaccines.”

“The
arrival of these vaccines could not have occurred at a more opportune
time considering the continued rise in cases, which in turn increases
the need to inoculate more high-risk individuals as soon as possible,”
Duque said.

Vaccine
czar Carlito Galvez said the arrival of the additional CoronaVac
vaccines “is a testament that when all nations are working together, we
can surmount any challenges ahead.”

“The
Philippine government will continue to strengthen its collaboration
with China to put an end to this pandemic finally,” Galvez added.

China
delivered a first batch of donated Sinovac vaccines to the Philippines
on Feb. 28. China is the first country to provide COVID-19 vaccines to
the Philippines, allowing the Southeast Asian country to kick off its
vaccination program.

The Philippines now has 677,653 confirmed COVID-19 cases, including 12,992 deaths.

The
Philippines has approved the emergency use for Sinovac vaccines, along
with the vaccines made by Pfizer, AstraZeneca, and Russia’s Sputnik V
vaccines.

The
government aims to inoculate up to 70 million Filipinos this year to
achieve herd immunity, starting with health care workers, the elderly,
and the poor communities. The Philippines has about 110 million
population.
