Vaccine Czar Secretary Carlito Galvez jr said the government is already identifying measures on how local government units can help in purchasing COVID-19 vaccines.

Galvez, also the chief implementer of the government’s COVID-19 efforts, said mayors from the National Capital Region have expressed intentions to assist the national government in its COVID-19 vaccination program.

“During our talk with NCR mayors, they are more than willing to help and also they wanted to unburden the government because vaccinating 110 million people is a huge task for us and very unprecedented,” Galvez said.

The Philippine government is eyeing to procure COVID-19 vaccines from four countries, namely the United States (Pfizer), China (Sinovac), Russia (Gamaleya Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology), and the United Kingdom (AztraZeneca).
