The government has received more than 87 million doses from various vaccine manufacturers so far, with a significant increase in supply from Pfizer and Moderna to pave the way for the vaccination of children and the general public this month.

Over 49 million shots were administered to Filipinos as of October 11, which is more than half of the total doses shipped to the country. However, only over 27% of the eligible population has been fully vaccinated against the virus — still far from the government's 77 million target 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

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.
