MANILA, Philippines—The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) on Monday (June 14) resumed its vaccination program using Coronavac, the vaccine brand manufactured by Chinese company Sinovac.
The vaccination program resumed after a "regular and steady" supply of the Chinese vaccines came in, said Capt. Jonathan Zata, AFP public affairs chief, in a statement.
The Camp General Emilio Aguinaldo Station Hospital received an initial 500 Coronavac doses for civilian and uniformed personnel assigned to Camp Aguinaldo, the AFP general headquarters.
A regular supply of 20.5 million doses of Coronavac is seen until the end of October 2021, according to an advisory issued by the National Vaccination Operations Center on June 10, Zata said.
Additional doses were expected for military facilities in the National Capital Region.
The AFP has so far completed the delivery of 70,000 Coronavac doses to military treatment facilities nationwide last April 29.
As of June 11, 34,390 AFP personnel have received two doses of Coronavac, while 34,978 have been given first dose shots.
A total of 3,339 doses of AstraZeneca vaccines have also been distributed to military treatment facilities nationwide as of June 10.
