Vaccine czar Carlito Galvez Jr., on Wednesday revealed that the government is planning to purchase booster shots from Moderna.

In Wednesday’s briefing at the House of Representatives, Galvez said the booster shots can be used for other vaccine brands.

“We found out that Moderna is developing a booster. Yung booster na yun ay pwedeng gamitin kahit na Sinovac o kahit na Gamaleya…. “ Galvez said.

Galvez said the boosters may be available in September or October.

“… So ang balak namin, yung five million, instead na yung bibilhin namin ay yung vaccine, we might buy the booster already. ‘Yan ang titingnan natin,” Galvez added.

The Philippines have secured 20 million doses of vaccines from Moderna.

The government has allocated P82.5 billion to purchase vaccines of which P58.4 billion will come from loans.
