COVID-19 VACCINE PHILIPPINES – Here’s what Carlito Galvez Jr. presented to President Rodrigo Duterte about the schedule of COVID-19 deliveries.
The current administration under President Rodrigo Duterte assured the people that the country will have a fair share of COVID-19 vaccine doses. The pandemic began over a year ago and the situation in the country is still the same. The entire country is still under a community quarantine.
