300 Coronavac doses delivered to QC hospital

About 300 doses of Coronavac, which is manufactured by Sinovac Biotech, were delivered to the Fe Del Mundo Medical Center in Quezon City late Monday evening.

GMA News' James Agustin reported that the vaccines were from the storage facility in Marikina City.

The Chinese government donated about 600,000 coronavirus vaccine doses from Sinovac that arrived on Sunday.

The shipment arrived at the Villamor Airbase on a Chinese Y-20 Transporter aircraft a little past 4 p.m.

Vaccine czar Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr. said the arrival of the vaccines marked the start of the country’s inoculation program. -- BAP, GMA News
