The Philippines will get 2.6 million shots of a potential COVID-19 vaccine developed by AstraZeneca under the country’s first supply deal for a coronavirus vaccine.

Jose Concepcion, a government business adviser representing the private sector said this supply, to be paid for by the private sector, will inoculate over 1 million Filipinos as the British drugmaker’s vaccine requires two doses.

Vaccine czar Carlito Galvez said authorities were also negotiating with AstraZeneca a possible purchase of a further 1 million doses of the vaccine.
