A total of 82.85 million vaccine doses were given by Tuesday, China's National Health Commission said on Wednesday.

China delivered a first batch of donated Sinovac vaccines to the Philippines on February 28.

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.

A Philippine Airlines Boeing 777 aircraft carried the CoronaVac doses from Beijing.

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.

Moreover, the country is expecting to receive nearly 2 million Covid-19 vaccine doses by the end of the month through the government's negotiations with Sinovac and through the World Health Organization-led Covax Facility, 1 million of which will be procured from China's Sinovac, while the remaining 979,200 doses are the additional donated AstraZeneca doses through Covax Facility. Of the total released, 251,235 doses or 30.7% went to NCR. About five million doses were paid for by private firms. Metro Manila, however, has only used close to 60 percent of its 1st dose allocations The second dose for the Sinovac vaccine should be administered after four weeks, while AstraZeneca should be between one to three months later.

Sinovac's overseas Phase III trials testing the vaccine's ability to prevent COVID-19 disease have so far not included minors. "We are preparing to set up regional vaccination sites for domestically produced vaccines in countries where conditions permit, to provide services to compatriots in need in neighbouring countries", diplomat Wang Yi had told. The rest of the trial subjects experienced mild symptoms, Zeng said.
