NTF begins vax procurement talks for 2022

The government is negotiating with four manufacturers to acquire between 90 and 100 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine next year.

National Task Force (NTF) Against COVID-19 chief, Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr., also announced during an inoculation event at a mall in Clark, Pampanga that the purchase of six million doses of the single-shot Johnson & Johnson, to be added to the January 2022 allocation, will be finalized this week.

Last week, the NTF got confirmation of the delivery this month of 18.3 million doses of Pfizer, Moderna, and Sinovac vaccines while the United States committed to send another 5.3 million doses of Pfizer through the US-COVAX sharing agreement.

So far, the Philippines has already received 77,410,640 doses since February, with 46,380,460 doses utilized since the rollout began on March 1.

Of the total delivered vaccines, 48.7 million doses were procured by the national government, 19.6 million doses were donated through the COVAX Facility, 5.3 million were purchased by local government units (LGUs) and private sector, and 3.6 million doses were donated by other countries.*PNA
