 MANILA, Philippines — Over 780,000 doses of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 5 to 11 arrived in the country on Friday night. 


The vaccine doses, which were purchased by the government through the World Bank, arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 at around 9:40 p.m., according to the National Task Force against COVID-19. 

The vaccination of 5 to11 year-old children was deferred to Monday, Feb. 7, on account of the delay of vaccine delivery. 


 The inoculation drive for this age group will start in six sites in Metro Manila.
