Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — Several local government units shared the good news that they have closed deals to secure hundreds of thousands of vaccine doses for their constituents.

Majority of the local chief executives announced that they have sealed tripartite agreements with the national government for doses of Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccines, which has an efficacy rate of up to 90% for those who received a half dose followed by a full dose. Their shot is relatively cheaper. It is also easier to store and distribute since it does not need to be stored at super-cold temperatures.

Other local government units are also in talks with other vaccine manufacturers.

UK-based AstraZeneca has applied for emergency use in the Philippines. It has secured emergency use authorization from the United Kingdom and India.

The following local governments have signed advanced marketing commitments with vaccine makers, as of January 13:

Some local government units nationwide have announced how much they would be spending for the inoculation of their residents.

Through a private sector donation, the national government separately secured an initial 2.6 million doses from AstraZeneca, which are expected to be delivered in May. Half of the purchase will go to the government, while the other half will be administered to employees of businesses that pitched in. Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship Joey Concepcion also said there will be a second batch of orders for another 3.7 million shots.

The government aims to vaccinate 50 million to 70 million Filipinos this year.
