GOVERNMENT TARGET: Vaccinate 200,000 Pinoys every day

Vaccine czar Carlito Galvez said 25,000 vaccinators are being trained to achieve the government’s goal of vaccinating 200,000 Filipinos every day once the nationwide vaccination program starts.

We’re going to have a record-breaking daily vaccination rollout, Galvez said in an interview over ABS-CBN News Channel.

For this year alone, the government is set to procure 148 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines.

Galvez earlier said that the government’s goal is to vaccinate 70 percent of Filipinos in three to five years.

The Philippines has already signed deals for vaccines developed by China’s Sinovac, the Serum Institute of India and British drugmaker AstraZeneca.
