Health Secretary Francisco Duque said the Philippines was “grateful for the arrival of this donation of additional vaccines.”

Carlito Galvez, in charge of the immunization program, said the arrival of these additional CoronaVac vaccines was “proof that when all nations work together, we can overcome any challenges ahead”.

“The Philippine government will continue to strengthen its collaboration with China to put a definitive end to this pandemic,” he added.

China delivered the first batch of CoronaVac to the Philippines on February 28, making it the first country to provide them with COVID-19 vaccines, allowing them to kick-start their vaccination program.
