“Lotsa laughs at others. But on the most serious note, I asked him (Pompeo) to help Babe (Ambassador Jose Manuel Romualdez) and I get back even a fraction of the 10 million doses of Pfizer after someone dropped the ball. He’ll give it his best try,” he said following a phone conversation with the American top diplomat on Friday night.

Aside from Pfizer, Locsin said Romualdez is also working to secure vaccines from American biotechnology firm Moderna.
