Fresh Batch of 1M Sinovac COVID-19 Vaccine Arrive In Philippines

COVID-19 VACCINE – Fresh batch of 1 million Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine doses arrived in the Philippines on Sunday, June 6.

Most nations and territories now are vaccinating their people to end the spread of the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19). There are different vaccines developed by different firms.

Russia’s Sputnik V, AstraZeneca, and China’s Sinovac and Sinopharm are among the COVID-19 vaccines that have reached the Philippines. The country is still being at war against an “unseen enemy.”

Based on a report from ABS-CBN, the country’s total COVID-19 cases climbed to more than 1.26 million on Saturday. There are 6,955 new cases of the disease. The Department of Health (DOH) said 59,543 are active cases while 21,732 are deaths.

Last month, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte told Chinese Ambassador to the Philippines Huang Xilian to send Sinovac to the Philippines, not Sinopharm. He said, “Huwag ka na lang magpadala ng Sinopharm dito para walang gulo. Sabi ko, ibigay mo lang sa amin ‘yong Sinovac na ginagamit sa lahat.”

In a previous article, several Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) who are vaccinated with Sinovac were alarmed after the government of Saudi Arabia allegedly barred them from entering the country. Their government recently announced that people who are vaccinated with AstraZeneca and Pfizer are allowed to enter their country.
