Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has allowed the emergency use of Covid-19 vaccines, meaning that the vaccines approved by other countries can be used locally after 21 days, down from the current required 6-month verification. 

The president has also approved the advance payment to the private developer of the vaccine. 

According to Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, Duterte will be issuing an executive order for the emergency vaccine use.
