“The Philippines and Colombia will be the first two countries to take part in the WHO solidarity vaccine trial,” Carlito Galvez, the National Task Force against COVID-19 chief implementer, said in an online briefing.

Majority of the vaccine trial participants will come from Metro Manila, considered to be the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Philippines.

As the vaccine trial rolls out, the Philippine government is also dealing with various vaccine makers including Chinese drug maker Sinovac Biotech, Novavax, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson of the US, and Russian medical research institute Gamaleya to buy vaccines.
