On Thursday, Galvez said that the United States was sending over 3 million doses of Janssen COVID-19 vaccine to the Philippines through the COVAX global vaccine sharing facility.

Galvez said in an interview on ANC’s Headstart that the COVID-19 vaccine doses were expected to be shipped within the month of July, but the final delivery date has yet to be determined.

According to Galvez, 3,024,000 doses of Janssen COVID-19 vaccine will be given to the Philippines, with at least 100,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses to be distributed per region.

Unlike other COVID-19 vaccines, the COVID-19 vaccine developed by Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen Pharmaceuticals required only one dose, making it easier for countries to roll out the said vaccine.

The said vaccine was expected to boost the country’s COVID-19 vaccine drive, where demand still outstripped supply and local governments continuously faced shortages of COVID-19 vaccine doses.

Galvez said in a separate statement that because the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine doses will be donated through COVAX, the national government’s priority list for COVID-19 vaccines must be strictly followed.

All COVAX-donated vaccines will be used strictly to inoculate A2 (senior citizens) and A3 (persons with comorbidities),” Galvez said.
