500,000 Sinovac vaccines arrive in PH
Another batch of Sinovac vaccines arrived in the country on Sunday, according to a report by CNN Philippines.
The 500,000 doses bought by the government arrived at Terminal 2 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport at around 5:10 p.m., as confirmed by Philippine Airlines in a tweet.
President Rodrigo Duterte was not at the event after the Palace said he would not be attending ceremonial turnovers anymore.
This is the second batch of government purchased CoronaVac vaccines, the first one arrived on March 29.
Prior to this, two batches of donated vaccines were brought in.
According to a timeline from Galvez, a total of 5.5 million vaccines are expected to arrive in April. Apart from Sinovac, vaccines from Gamaleya and COVAX are also expected.
On Sunday, Senator Bong Go said an initial 20,000 of Gamaleya's Sputnik V vaccines will arrive this week.
Go said the first batch is up for a "pilot logistics run" since there are unique requirements for the first and second doses of the vaccine.
