The Philippines is donating its excess Covid-19 vaccines to Myanmar and Papua New Guinea, the Malacañang announced on Tuesday, April 5.
This, as the country looks for solutions on the issue of expiring vaccines after millions of Filipinos remain hesitant in getting their booster shots.
Recently, Presidential adviser for entrepreneurship Joey Concepcion said around 27 million doses of Covid-19 shots will expire in July.
According to Communications Secretary Martin Andanar, “legal documentation processes are ongoing” for the delivery of the vaccines to Myanmar.
Meanwhile, Health Undersecretary Maria Lourdes Vergeire said Papua New Guinea will also receive vaccines from the Philippines.
“We’re still finalizing our inventories and finalizing arrangements with these two countries,” Vergeire said, but clarified that not all excess doses will be donated.
