Gov't eyes 20 million doses of AstraZeneca vaccines
The government is set to sign a deal with British pharmaceutical firm Astrazeneca for 20 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine on January 14, vaccine czar Carlito Galvez, Jr. said in a report by GMA News.
"After the signing tomorrow, magkakaroon ng tripartite supply agreement na pipirmahan ng national government, LGU (local government units), at vaccine maker. Ang responsibility ng LGU ay to administer the vaccines," Galvez said during the Laging Handa briefing.
"Iyong supply chain requirement, syringe, lata ng consumables, integrated po ang efforts ng LGUs, national government, at private sector. Kung ang isang LGU po ay 30% lang ang mabibili [na bakuna gamit ang kanilang budget], national government po ang magpupuno nung 70%," he added.
This is in addition to the earlier tripartite agreement between the Philippine government, the private sector, and AstraZeneca for 2.6 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine inked last November 2020.
The 2.6 million doses, funded by the private sector and donated to the Philippine government, are good for one million people.
During a Senate hearing Monday, Galvez said 50,000 Filipinos are expected to get COVID-19 vaccine by February.
The Philippines has recorded 491, 258 COVID-19 cases so far. Of this number, 458,172 recovered while 9,554 died.
The number of active COVID-19 cases is at 23,532.
