MANILA, Philippines — The Philippines expects the delivery of more than 100 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines by the end of October, Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr., the national vaccine manager, said on Monday in a taped briefing with President Rodrigo Duterte.

According to Galvez, 9,586,270 doses of COVID-19 vaccines were delivered this week.

“We now have a steady supply from Sinovac, Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moderna,q and COVAX. We are renegotiating with Russian Direct Investment Fund for Sputnik Lights,” said Galvez.
