The Department of Health will immediately send more COVID-19 vaccines to local governments once additional supplies arrive, an official said in a report by CNN Philippines.

Department of Health Director Napoleon Arevalo made the remark after a number of local governments said they have yet to start vaccinating the A4 priority group or essential workers pending the arrival of additional supplies.

"Bukas, may dadating din po tayo na karagdagang bakuna at ito po ay idedeploy kaagad sa ating mga vaccination centers," he said in a briefing.

[Translation: Tomorrow, more vaccines will arrive, and they will be immediately deployed to our vaccination centers.]

The allocation for each priority area will be determined in the next couple of days, he added.

Incoming vaccine deliveries had been largely earmarked for the so-called NCR 8 area, specifically Metro Manila, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Rizal, Pampanga, Batangas, Metro Cebu, and Metro Davao. NCR 8 accounts for the majority of COVID-19 cases in the country. Arevalo said they are also considering giving the limited supplies to other localities experiencing a surge in infections.

Vaccine czar Carlito Galvez earlier said 3.2 million doses are set to be delivered to the country on June 10. Of the number, 2.2 million are Pfizer shots, while 1 million are Sinovac doses. Galvez earlier said they are expecting around 10 million doses in all this month, including the shots for the A4 sector.
