The government has received more than 108 million doses from various vaccine manufacturers so far, with a significant increase in supply from Pfizer as the government expands its vaccine drive for children aged 12 to 17 years old.

Over 61 million COVID-19 shots were administered to Filipinos as of November 3, which is more than half of the total doses shipped to the country. However, only over 36% of the eligible population has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 — still far from the government's target to vaccinate 77 million Filipinos to achieve herd immunity by yearend.

Eight manufacturers have secured regulatory approval for emergency use of their vaccine in the country. These are Sinovac, Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Gamaleya, Johnson & Johnson, Bharat Biotech, Moderna, and Sinopharm.

Vaccine czar Carlito Galvez Jr. said the government is aiming to raise its daily vaccination target to over 1.5 million doses daily later this month. Regulatory experts are looking into the efficacy of some brands for the administration of booster shots and third dose on Nov. 15.

President Rodrigo Duterte said that despite the vaccine shortage in the country early this year, a "better" Christmas is still in store for Filipinos due to the increased vaccine confidence and public compliance with health and safety protocols.
