DOH: 8-M Covid-19 vaccinations will expire between March and October
A health official said on Tuesday that approximately 8 million Covid-19 vaccines will expire between March and October of this year.
15.3 million vaccinations are anticipated to expire, according to Maria Rosario Vergeire, the Department of Health’s officer in charge of media briefings.
“We will remove the almost seven million for which we are awaiting the decision of the FDA [Food and Drug Administration] together with the manufacturers who have applied kung ma-re-re-extend natin ‘yung shelf life nila,” she said.
“We have vaccines that are due to expire from March through October that we’re looking at, and this would constitute roughly 8 million because we’ll remove those quarantined while they wait for re-extension,” she continued.
Vergeire clarified that the Covid-19 vaccine waste does not just comprise expired shots but also shots that were thrown away as a result of fires, temperature swings, natural disasters, and other situations.
She stated that the number was still 44 million, which represented all of the Covid-19 vaccine program’s waste.
By including the Covid-19 vaccinations into the routine vaccination programs in the local institutions, the Department of Health (DOH) has increased public access to these vaccines.
Prior to this, the Department of Health (DOH) assured the public that the vaccines were disposed of according to the guidelines set forth by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.***
