The Philippines is scheduled to receive one million AstraZeneca vaccine doses from the Japanese government as early as July 8, Ambassador to the Philippines Kazuhiko Koshikawa announced on Tuesday, June 30.
“One step closer to the Philippines’ goal of herd immunity? Count us in! One million doses of AstraZeneca vaccines from Japan are expected to arrive in Manila tentatively on July 8,” Koshikawa tweeted on Tuesday.
The update comes just two weeks after Japan’s announcement that the Philippines will be among countries which will receive AstraZeneca vaccines made in Japan.
