In an update aired over state-run PTV, Galvez announced that the COVAX facility will deliver 2.2 million Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine doses to the Philippines on June 11, marking the beginning of a steady monthly supply from COVAX.

The delivery of 2.2 million COVID-19 vaccine doses was initially scheduled for end-May but was rescheduled to June. So far, the Philippines had received an initial delivery of 193,050 Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine doses from the COVAX facility.

Initial deliveries of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine doses from COVAX were deployed to Metro Manila, Cebu, and Davao because they have the capacity to store those vaccine doses at the required temperature of -70°C.

The national government expected some 10 million COVID-19 vaccine doses to arrive in June.

Galvez also said that the country’s COVID-19 vaccine supply will be “stabilized” by July, comprised mostly of Moderna, AstraZeneca, Sputnik V, and Sinovac COVID-19 vaccines.

He added that more than 5 million Filipinos, of the total 110 million population, had received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
