On Thursday, FDA Director-General Eric Domingo said in an interview on Super Radyo dzBB that the FDA had reached out to San Juan Representative Ronaldo Zamora to seek information on his vaccination with “bootleg” doses of Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine.

Sana po maituro sa amin [ang supplier]. Sumulat po ako kay Congressman Zamora, nanghihingi ng impormasyon na makakatulong po sa aming imbestigasyon,” Domingo said.

Earlier, Zamora admitted that he received two doses of Sinopharm vaccine in December last year and recently received another two doses of Pfizer vaccine as “boosters”

The Food and Drug Administration only granted an emergency use authorization (EUA) to the Sinopharm vaccine in June this year.

Maaaring fake talaga ‘yun, maaaring counterfeit or substandard o kaya hindi na-handle properly. Kung pinapasa pasa lamang tapos ibibigay sa’yo, ituturok mo, talagang napakalaki ng chance na by the time makarating ‘yan ay unang una, kung hindi naman siya fake, talagang wala na siyang bisa,” Domingo said.

Domingo also warned that distributors and importers of unauthorized COVID-19 vaccines, as well as health workers who administered them, were criminally liable.

The Department of Health had also encouraged the public not to mix and match COVID-19 vaccines or get a booster dose yet, stressing the need for more data.

Meanwhile, Domingo said that the Presidential Security Group (PSG) still had not responded to the FDA’s requests for information on their unauthorized COVID-19 vaccination with Sinopharm vaccine doses late last year.
