Handa umanong magbigay ng 25 milyong doses ng Sinopharm ang China Biotechnology Co. Ltd. sa panahong maaprubahan ng Food and Drug Administration ang kanilang emergency use authorization.
Ayon kay Atty. Mark Kristopher Tolentino, President at CEO ng MKG Universal Drugs Trading Corp. na siyang itinalaga bilang eksklusibong distributor ng Sinopharm vaccine sa bansa, may kakayanan umano ang China Biotech na magpadala ng 25 milyong doses ng bakuna sa Pilipinas.
“Once we get FDA approval, we can have the Sinopharm vaccine here in just one week, to be delivered by plane,” ani Tolentino.
Sa kasalukuyan umano, hinihintay na lamang nila na maaprubahan ng FDA ang emergency use authorization na isinumite nila noong Enero.
Aniya, sa panahong makuha ang EUA, may kapasidad umano ang Sinopharm na mabakunahan ang buong populasyon ng bansa sa lalong madaling panahon.
“Sinopharm is China’s best vaccine, and is strongly recommended for both the young (three years old) and the old (up to 100 years old), as well as for those with underlying diseases and comorbidities. It is also suitable for Asians,” paliwanag ni Tolentino.
Sa datos na lumabas mula sa clinical trials na isinagawa noong Hunyo 2020 sa United Arab Emirates, 1,500 umano sa mga lumahok ay mga Pilipino at walang naitalang adverse effects matapos mabakunahan ang mga ito.
