Manila Mayor Isko Moreno Expects AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccines For Manileños To Arrive This March

The Manila city government is just waiting for the arrival of vaccines made by the British pharmaceutical firm AstraZeneca.

According to Manila Mayor Isko Moreno, in a best-case scenario, it is possible that the doses of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine will arrive in the city in March.

If it is not in March, he said, it is possible that in June or in the worst-case scenario, the vaccine will arrive in Manila in September.

Last week, the city government issued a 20 percent downpayment for the vaccine, worth P38.4 million.

Manila has secured 800,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccines from a British firm, which will be used to inject 400,000 residents.

The mayor also announced that his vaccination would be done in public.
