MANILA, Philippines- Halos 1.6 milyong bakuna laban sa COVID-19 na binili ng pribadong sektor ang nakatakdang mapaso sa Agosto, na magreresulta sa daang libong pisong masasayang, ayon kay Go Negosyo founder Joey Concepcion Martes.

Binubuo ito ng AstraZeneca at Moderna vaccines, base kay Concepcion, na binili ng pribadong sektor sa halagang $10 kada dose.

“By mid-August, about 1.6 million of the private sector vaccines will expire. We’re looking at hundreds of millions of pesos that the private sector will lose because these vaccines are expiring,” ani Concepcion sa Pandesal forum.

Dahil dito, muling nanawagan si Concepcion sa Health Technical Advisory Council (HTAC) tna payagan ang administrasyon ng second booster shot sa general population.

Sa kasalukuyang, pwede lamang bakunahan ng ikalawang booster shot ang mga senior citizen at immunocompromised individuals.

“The sense of urgency is quite not there. The private sector and the government is trying to do their best, but there’s a body that is somehow moving quite slow,” giit niya.

“If the Americans are the ones who invented these vaccines and then we bought it from them, shouldn’t we follow what CDC (Center for Disease Control) is doing? It’s the same thing,” pahayag pa ni Concepcion.

“The private sector bought these vaccines and we consider that it’s not going to be from the government allocation.” RNT/SA
