By 2023, Covid-19 vaccines could be on the market in the Philippines.

By 2023, vaccines against the coronavirus illness 2019 (Covid 19) may be commercially accessible in the Philippines.

Even if the vaccines are available for purchase by then, the government will continue to distribute free doses to youngsters, senior citizens, and the poor population, according to Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr., the primary implementer of the National Task Force Against Covid-19.

“Meron pa rin tayo kung magkakaroon ng commercialisation next year. ‘Yung sa cholera, tigdas, atsaka ‘yung polio,’ for example. Meron rin tayo sa gobyerno na ibibigay lalo na sa mga bata, matatanda at ‘dun sa mga disadvantaged communities na hindi kayang bumili ng bakuna. (Even if commercialization occurs next year, we will still get free vaccines, such as cholera, measles, and polio vaccinations.) We still have a share of the government’s budget to distribute, primarily to children, the elderly, and low-income groups who cannot afford vaccines) “Galvez said in an interview at the QualiMed Clinic in Makati City on Friday, during the commencement of the vaccination rollout.

The government would also move through with a consolidated procurement of Covid-19 vaccinations, according to Galvez.

“When we talked to the producers, they indicated they’d rather sell their vaccinations to the national government,” he said, citing faster transactions due to volume sales.

Makati Mayor Abby Binay, who was also there, said the city administration is considering purchasing Covid-19 vaccines for its inhabitants once they become commercially available.

All Covid-19 vaccines have received Emergency Use Authorization from the country’s Food and Drug Administration.
