DOH deploys COVID-19 vaccines shortly before expiration


Private sector’s nearly-expiry Moderna Covid-19 vaccines has been deployed by the Department of Health (DOH), it said on Thursday. 

According to DOH Undersecretary Myrna Cabotaje, the vaccines will expire by November 30. These jabs were bought by private institutions whose employees have already been vaccinated. Private companies loaned these to prevent wastage, she added. 

“We have already deployed all of them. Binigay natin ito sa areas na maganda ang performance at syempre may cold chain capacity,” Cabotaje said. 

“Dinidistribute na, binabakuna na sa areas na inidentify mostly (sa) Region 3 (Central Luzon) and 4A (Calabarzon) kasi sila ang pinakamabilis at sila ang pinakamaraming di nababakunahan. We’re targeting this week para mabigay na lahat ang ‘di pa nabigay…2 weeks lang dapat ubos na ‘yan,” she added. 

To achieve population protection and reopen the economy, it will inoculate 77 million people.
