The national government will welcome 3.2 million doses of Pfizer and Sinovac COVID-19 vaccines on June 10, the biggest single-day COVID-19 vaccine arrival so far.

Galvez’s announcement came as he graced the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccination program for economic frontloners (A4) in Greenhills, San Juan City on Wednesday.

According to Galvez, one million Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine doses will arrive at 7:30am at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 2 in Pasay City. The China-made COVID-19 vaccines will be fetched from Bejing through Cebu Pacific flight 5J671.

Meanwhile, a total of 2,279,160 Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine doses will be delivered at 9:00 pm via a DHL flight. The US-made COVID-19 vaccines were donations from the WHO-led COVAX facility and the shipment will land at NAIA Terminal 2.

According to Galvez, 210,600 Pfizer vaccine doses will be allocated each for Metro Davao and Metro Cebu while the rest of the supply will go to Metro Manila.

Both the Pfizer and Sinovac jabs will be used for the vaccination of economic frontliners (A4). The COVID-19 vaccine doses will be stored at the cold chain facility of Pharmaserv Express, Inc. in Marikina City.
