Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, July 27) — Over 300,000 more Pfizer vaccines arrived in the country on Monday, further boosting government supplies.

According to the National Task Force against COVID-19, the 375,570 doses procured by the government arrived earlier this evening.

"Of these vaccine doses, 51,480 shots were delivered to Cebu City early tonight at around 6:35 p.m., while 51,480 doses will be shipped to Davao City on Tuesday, July 27," it said.

Last week, the country received 562,770 doses of the vaccine, which were part of the 40 million shots the country bought from the American pharmaceutical firm after the signing of a supply agreement last month.

On July 24, vaccine czar Secretary Carlito Galvez, Jr. said over 5.5 million Filipinos have been vaccinated against COVID-19, as the government administers nearly 500,000 vaccine shots per day.
