Manila receives a donation of cold storage equipment from Japan.

Through the United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef) Philippines, the municipal government of Manila has obtained two cold chain equipment from the Japanese government for the storage of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) vaccinations.

During the turnover ceremony at Manila City Hall on Monday, Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna and city health department chief, Dr. Arnold Pangan, welcomed the Japanese Ambassador, Koshikawa Kazuhiko, and several Unicef Philippines officials.

Lacuna noted in her address, “This would significantly increase our storage capability and effectiveness in handling the vaccines against Covid-19.”

She told the Japanese government that the city will continue to roll out the Covid-19 vaccine program, which includes kids aged 12 to 17.

The municipal administration injected 554 minors with second doses on Monday, bringing the total number of injections for children under the age of 18 to 56,832.

Out of the predicted 1.3 million adults who will receive the full doses, 1,292,617 have already received them.

As of Monday lunchtime, just 259 Covid-19 instances were active in Manila.
