Chinese Ambassador to the Philippines Huang Xilian, and Senator Bong Go, chairman of the Senate Committee on Health personally welcomed the Sinovac vaccines at the NAIA. This makes Shanghai the first city in the country to provide coronavirus vaccine to non-Chinese residents, as per reports.

The OCTA Research Team from the University of the Philippines, which has been tracking the pandemic numbers, on Wednesday said all vaccines available in the country must be deployed to the National Capital Region (NCR) and its surrounding provinces where there have been a renewed surge of transmissions.

China's daily vaccine output has climbed to 5 million doses from 1.5 million doses in February, said the task force, as notable progress has been made in the country's vaccine R&D and production.

Reuters calculations based on official data found that an average of 2.6 million doses were given between March 21 and March 23, up from about 1.7 million doses a day on average between March 15 and March 20.

The Philippines received on Wednesday, March 24, 400,000 additional doses of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccines developed by China's Sinovac Biotech.

A total of 80.46 million vaccine doses were given by Monday, Xinhua said.

Duque underscored the need to maintain the growing confidence for the CoronaVac vaccines, which he said has "improved tremendously" since the first batch's arrival.

"It's going to help us because the healthcare workers are the ones taking care of the patients and cases, which has increased over the last month so the priority is them", Duque said.

The private sector and local governments were able to secure about 17 million doses of AstraZeneca through a tripartite agreement with the national government and the manufacturer.

"We share the urgency of Canadians to ensure access to life-saving vaccines as rapidly as possible, and our government is operating with this sense of urgency every single day", Han wrote late Tuesday.
