The Philippines has breached the 90-million mark in terms of Covid-19 vaccine doses it has received, following the arrival of Pfizer-BioNTech, AstraZeneca and Sputnik V jabs.

On Friday, the country received 1,068,210 Pfizer doses procured by the national government.

Of the total jabs, 141,570 doses were delivered to Cebu City, while 64,350 doses were shipped to Davao City.

The remaining 862,290 doses, according to the National Task Force Against Covid-19, will be used to vaccinate minors.

The country also received on Friday the first batch of AstraZeneca vaccines donated by the German government through the Covax facility.

The 844,800 doses were part of the 1.6 million doses the German government had pledged to give the Philippines.

On Saturday afternoon, the Philippines received 720,000 doses of the Russian-made Sputnik V vaccine.

The country now has over 91.3 million Covid-19 vaccine doses.

It aims to inoculate up to 90 million Filipinos to achieve herd immunity. John Ezekiel J. Hirro
