The donated COVID-19 vaccines sent the country is a sign of hope for Filipinos, Vice President Leni Robredo, noting that the country has been in quarantine for almost a year. 

In her weekly Sunday radio show, the vice president expressed her gratefulness for the donated COVID-19 vaccines as they gave hope to a country like the Philippines which has been on community quarantine for a year.

“Matagal na panahon na parang impatient tayo kasi nakikita natin iyong ibang mga bansa nagpapaturok nanag-rollout na ng vaccination, pero at last dumating na dito sa atin,” she said.

On February 26, the first shipment of vaccines against COVID-19 from Chinese drugmaker Sinovac Biotech arrived in the country. Almost a week after, the plane carrying 487,200 doses of the vaccine developed by British-Swedish pharmaceutical firm AstraZeneca also landed in the country.
