Sotto said the LGU will also buy vaccines from other vaccine makers as opportunities arise.

"We'll buy from others too as opportunities arise," he said.

Sotto enumerated what he said were the advantages of AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine: it's cheaper, easier to transport and store, has acceptable efficacy, and is approved in other countries.

Over the weekend, some LGUs announced they have signed deals to buy AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines: Iloilo City for 600,000 doses; Caloocan City for 600,000 doses; Vigan City for 100,000 doses; and Valenzuela City for 640,000 doses.
