MANILA, Philippines — The Philippines is expecting the delivery of over 103 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine from October to December, Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III said.

In a taped meeting with President Rodrigo Duterte aired late Thursday, Dominguez said this out of 194.89 million doses the country already secured for 2021, good for more than 100 million people.
