In a report on GMA News Online, Philippine Ambassador to the United States Jose Manuel Romualdez said during the Laging Handa briefing that the first batch of 20 million Moderna COVID-19 vaccine doses will arrive in the Philippines by June 2021, at the latest.

According to Romualdez, half of it will be used by the private sector and the other half will be used by health workers and the local government units.

Ito po iyong ’yung funded ng private sector saka ng World Bank. Hindi naman po sabay-sabay ‘yan [darating], pero ‘yung first batch, mga first week of May or no later than June, then tuloy-tuloy na sa third and fourth quarter of the year. Half of this will be used by the private sector, the other half will be used by our health workers and the LGUs,” Romualdez said.

Moderna was an American company and its COVID-19 vaccine had shown a 94% efficacy rate after human clinical trials, so far.

Meanwhile, Romualdez said that Johnson and Johnson had allocated six million of its single-dose Janssen COVID-19 vaccine to the Philippines.

The Philippines began its COVID-19 vaccination program last March 1 after the 600,000 Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine doses donated by the Chinese government had arrived in the country last February 28.

This was followed by the 487,200 AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine doses donated by Australia and European nations under the global initiative COVAX facility, which arrived on Thursday, March 4.
