Were doses of Russia’s Sputnik V vaccines smuggled to Quezon before they were shipped to the Philippines on May 1?

No less than Quezon Governor Danilo Suarez claimed that Sputnik V vaccines were already used in the province, according to Pilipino Star Ngayon columnist Al Pedroche.

“Ibinunyag ng governor na nakakuha na diumano ng Sputnik Gamaleya vaccine ang kanyang probinsiya pero mababa ang bilang ng mga nabakunahan,” Pedroche said in his April 28 column, citing Suarez’s recent interview with members of the National Press Club (NPC).

“Hindi tinukoy ni Gov ang dami ng Sputnik Gamaleya na hawak na ng lalawigan ng Quezon,” Pedroche added.

Only 15,000 doses of Sputnik V were delivered to the Philippines on May 1 as paart of the government’s dry run to test how the vaccines should be used.

The Sputnik V vaccine requires a storage temperature of minus 18 degrees Celsius and below.

The cities of Taguig, Manila, Muntinlupa, Makati, and Parañaque were given 3,000 doses each of the vaccine.

An additional 485,000 doses will be delivered within May, according to COVID-19 task force chief implementer Sec. Carlito Galvez Jr.
