Sinovac vaccine safe for children as young as 3

Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine appears safe, triggers antibodies in trial in children: researcher

As of March 23, vaccine czar Secretary Carlito Galvez, Jr. said 1,105,500 or 98 percent of the vaccines that the Philippines received via COVAX Facility and donations were already deployed. Several Philippine government officials together with Chinese Ambassador to the Philippines Huang Xilian were at the airport to see the arrival of the 400,000 vaccine doses. "This is considered a milestone flight for PAL as it marks the flag carrier's first airlift of COVID-19 vaccines to Manila from an worldwide hub and makes PAL the first local carrier to fetch and carry home much-needed vaccines for our country", PAL spokesperson Cielo Villaluna said.

Mr. Concepcion said 2.6 million of private sector-funded AstraZeneca doses are expected to arrive in May.

A Philippine Airlines Boeing 777 aircraft carried the CoronaVac doses from Beijing. "We hope we will contribute to speed up the mass vaccination in this country so that we will win over the war against the virus and recover the economy". We just need to have this prioritization because we do not have enough vaccines yet.

AstraZeneca to reissue vaccine trial data following claim it gave 'incomplete view'
Vietnam began a mass Covid vaccination program using the AstraZeneca vaccine earlier this month, starting with frontline workers. The United States has said it is sharing 1.5 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine with Canada as early as this week.

"It's going to help us because the healthcare workers are the ones taking care of the patients and cases, which has increased over the last month so the priority is them", Duque said. "We'll consume as quickly as possible these vaccines", he said. On Monday (March 29) PAL will again send an all-cargo flight to bring the first batch of one million CoronaVac jabs bought from Sinovac.

China's state-run Global Times pushed back against complaints of opaque testing and dubious effectiveness for Chinese coronavirus vaccines by touting Sinovac as the "world's first to release relevant data of ongoing trials on infant and teenage participants".

Dizon said most of the newly-arrived CoronaVac doses will be allocated for Metro Manila and the provinces of Laguna, Bulacan, Cavite, and Rizal where surges in cases have been recorded.
