Congratulations to the govt. for starting our Philippine vaccination program today March 1, 2021 led by Vaccine Czar Gen. Carlito Galvez,Jr., FDA director general Eric Domingo, Sec. Harry Roque, Metro Manila Dev’t. Authority (MMDA) Chairman Benhur Abalos, Testing Czar Vince Dizon, Philippine General Hospital (PGH) doctors led by Medical Director Dr. Gerardo Legaspi, etc. We believe this shall signal the beginning of Phil. economic, public health & consumer confidence recovery.
Special thanks to our good neighbor, traditional ally and long-time trade partner China for their generous gift of 600,000 doses of Sinovac vaccines, which they sent us via a special military transport plane yesterday. Congratulations to the successful diplomacy of Pres. Rodrigo R. Duterte, Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin, Jr. & Gen. Galvez. Thank you also to the special assistance and efforts of China Ambassador Huang Xilian. I am very hopeful and optimistic about our Philippine economic recovery will start this year.
The vaccines program shall definitely boost economic confidence, both from us investors of the business sector and also from our consumers. We welcome and support this vaccines program, hoping that our lives shall soon return back to normal.
We urge the public to heed our government experts in IATF, FDA & others, who have said this vaccination is safe and healthy, that we should fully support this vaccination program. The experts here and abroad say Sinovac is safe because it was developed using traditional ways and it is now being used in many countries worldwide. 59-year-old Indonesia President Joko Widodo, 67-year-old Turkey President Tayyip Erdogan and 63-year-old Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam are among numerous world leaders who have already received Sinovac vaccine injections. Let us heed science and promote better public health for faster Philippine economic recovery.
