The Philippines is expecting to receive shots from United States-based pharmaceutical firm Moderna in the first half of the year, according to Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr.
Locsin bared in a Twitter post that Philippine Ambassador to the US Jose Manuel Romualdez assured him that Moderna vaccines would arrive in the first half of the year.
“Just talked to Babe in DC. Definitely, Moderna coming in the first half, 20,000,000 doses. We’ll release the timeline soon,” Locsin posted on Twitter.
“By the time Moderna gets here, it’ll have addressed COVID variants,” he added.
Just talked to Babes in D.C. Definitely Moderna coming in first half: 20,000,000 doses; we’ll release the timeline soon. If we don’t keep the public in the dark it will wait carefully, keeping up protective measures. By time Moderna gets here, it’ll have addressed Covid variants.
