Interior Secretary Eduardo Año on Monday said some Cabinet members as well as personnel from the Presidential Security Group (PSG) have already been vaccinated against COVID-19.

No COVID-19 vaccine has so far secured the approval of the Philippine Food and Drug Administration.

For Año, the vaccines could already be used especially by health workers and other frontliners because of the emergency use authorization.

“‘Yung mga gamot na ‘yan may EUA yan eh, emergency use authorization. Kahit na hindi pa ‘yan formally and finally approved, in times of pandemic, puwede gamitin ‘yan ng mga tinatawag nating health workers, frontliners,” he said.

“‘Yun ‘yung essence noon eh, bakit mo aantayin ‘yung final approval kung nangamatay na ‘yung mga health workers at mga frotliners,” he added.

So far, only the Pfizer-BioNTech had applied for an emergency use authorization (EUA) for its vaccine as disclosed by presidential spokesman Harry Roque over the weekend. The process of approval is expected to last up to 21 days.
