“Pwedeng (They may) decline but we won’t know when (their) next schedule (will be),” he added.

Because of the still limited supply of the vaccines, Camiña said the brands in the random computer program are also limited.

Health experts have urged the public not to be picky with the brand of vaccine as all of them are effective against COVID-19.
