President Rodrigo Duterte was “perplexed” by the condition made by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in granting an emergency use authorization (EUA) to Chinese drugmaker Sinovac’s Covid-19 vaccine, his spokesman said Wednesday.

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque admitted that Duterte invited FDA Director General Rolando Enrique Domingo to the last Cabinet meeting and asked him of this matter.

To recall, FDA recently issued Sinovac an EUA but did not recommend the China-made vaccine for health workers and senior citizens.

“Si Presidente mismo nagtataka bakit ganun ang naging EUA ng FDA. Pinatawag si Secretary Domingo nung huling Cabinet meeting at naiparating ni Presidente ang kanyang pagtataka kung bakit may ganitong kulatilya. Nirerespeto ni Presidente ang mga opinyon ng mga experts kaya let the kulatilya remain,” Roque said during his virtual presser.

“Ang pangalawa po, tinanong kasi ni Presidente yung sa Indonesia ba at ibang bansa na gumagamit ng Sinovac eh ginamitan ba nila ang kanilang mga health workers. Nung Lunes, sabi ni Dr. Domingo hindi niya alam. Pero since then nalaman namin na ginagamit din po sa mga healthcare workers ang Sinovac sa Indonesia,” he added.

Authorities earlier announced that China donated 600,000 Sinovac vaccines to the Philippines, allocating 100,000 of these to the Armed Forces of the Philippines.
