Pfizer’s coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccine will become available in the Philippines by February, according to Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque.

Roque, however, did not say how many doses of Pfizer vaccine will arrive next month.

“Ang mabuting balita bagamat hindi ko masasabi kung ilang eksakto eh makakatanggap na rin daw tayo ng ilang bakuna galing sa Pfizer as early as February,” the official said in his virtual presser Thursday.

“Pero hindi lang ako at liberty para sabihin kung ilang. Alam kong hindi ganun ka rami ang matatanggap natin, pero sa Pebrero hindi lang 50,000 na Sinovac ang gagamitin natin, meron na rin tayong ilang Pfizer na magagamit.”

Roque earlier announced that the initial batch of 50,000 doses from China’s Sinovac Biotech will be delivered by February. A total of 25 million doses are also expected to be available until June.

“Patunay yan na hindi tayo na hindi tayo pumapabor kahit anong brand. Kung alin ang makakarating sa Pilipinas sa lalong mabilis na panahon, yan ang kukunin natin,” he added.
