Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. on Tuesday tweeted that he and Philippine Ambassador to the United States Jose Manuel “Babe” Romualdez were able to secure millions of vaccine doses to arrive in the country by January 2021, but plans were foiled because “someone dropped the ball.”

The Health Secretary refuted claims by several government officials that someone “dropped the ball” and lost the opportunity for the Philippines to purchase COVID-19 from pharmaceutical giant Pfizer.

Speculation arose that the “someone” referred to is health chief Francisco Duque III, but Duque insisted a vaccine supply deal with Pfizer is still being worked out.
