The Question Remains, Where are the Vaccines?

Given all the cash acquired just to get them, a congressperson on Thursday asked the public authority: Where is the nation’s inventory of the critically required COVID-19 immunizations?

Sen. Panfilo Lacson said this on his social media account as he noticed that the nation has an asset of P126.75 billion for the acquisition of immunizations — everything except P10 billion of which are credits from the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank.

In spite of this, lone hits gave by China and the COVAX office have shown up in the country, over about fourteen days into the public authority’s as of now postponed vaccination program. Up until this point, the public authority has protected two arrangements with makers. A buy arrangement for 1,000,000 portions of Sinovac’s immunization for P700 million and a stock arrangement for P30 million of Novavax’s hits.
