Covid-19 vaccinations should be registered as soon as possible. Concepcion

MANILA, Philippines – Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship Joey Concepcion has urged that the application procedure for a certificate of product registration (CPR) for coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) vaccinations be started as the government prepares to lift the status of a public health emergency.

Concepcion said during the Laging Handa public briefing on Monday that when the public health emergency status is withdrawn, the emergency use authorization (EUA) for Covid-19 vaccinations will no longer be valid.

Vaccine producers, he argued, need CPR to keep the Covid-19 vaccines rolling out.

“What we want to accomplish is, if the public eventually buys their own vaccines, vaccine makers will have to apply for CPR ‘no,’ which is a certificate of product registration,” he explained. “As a result, vaccine makers should apply for their CPR, which is critical.”

Concepcion claims that initiating the CPR application procedure even if the country is still in the midst of a public health emergency caused by Covid-19 will prevent future vaccine shortages.

This is due to the fact that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) typically takes three to four months to grant CPR to pharmaceutical companies.

“However, if we don’t start talking about it and the vaccine makers don’t apply for CPRs or the FDA delays in approving their CPRs, then all of this will be postponed,” he said.

AstraZeneca, the private sector’s Covid-19 vaccine supplier, has expressed interest in applying for CPR, according to Concepcion.

After the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) designated the Philippines as a low-risk country, Concepcion advocated lifting the country’s public health emergency amid Covid-19.

“We need to plan, and this condition of public health emergency should be lifted someday; it can’t go indefinitely.” And, as far as I can see, the Philippines is in the position to be removed. And, in my opinion, alert levels do not need to grow beyond Alert Level 1 anymore, and we cannot afford to do so,” he stated.

He went on to say that the lifting of the state of public health emergency might be decided by the next administration.
