Sinovac Biotech will complete its COVID-19 vaccine delivery to the Philippines by September, according to Nograles.

On Friday, Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles said that Sinovac Biotech had agreed to advance the delivery date of the remaining COVID-19 vaccine supplies bought by the Philippines by September.

This, as the Philippine government was counting on the full delivery of the COVID-19 vaccines it procured from Sinovac Biotech earlier than expected.

During an online media briefing, Nograles welcomed the planned early delivery of the Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine doses, saying that this would help accelerate the inoculation of more Filipinos leading up the “ber” months in order to enhance protection against COVID-19.

“We’re still on track in terms of our timelines for vaccination, in terms of population protection, in terms of herd immunity, maganda naman ang rollout,” Nograles said.

Back in January, the Philippine government secured 25 million Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine doses which were supposed to be delivered from March until December this year.

From this vaccine procurement, 13.5 million COVID-19 vaccine doses have been delivered so far, including the 1.5 million COVID-19 vaccine doses that arrived in the country Saturday, July 17.

The Philippine government still expected the delivery of the remaining 11.5 million Sinovac vaccine doses.

According to Nograles, more COVID-19 vaccines were expected to be delivered to the Philippines in the coming months, which can be distributed to areas outside Metro Manila.

Nograles also noted that the vaccination of Filipinos could help revitalize consumer and business confidence and consequently spur economic recovery in the country.

That will create a lot of you know, more confidence. More confidence against the virus, more confidence in terms of consumer spending, more confidence in terms of business activities at iyan ang gusto nating mangyari leading to the ‘ber’ months,” Nograles said.
