Why is the government favoring Sinovac over other Covid-19 vaccine brands

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Department of Health Secretary Francisco Duque says deal sealed for 25M doses of Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine.




Tignan mo tong kabobohan ni Duque. Nagsecure ng 25 million doses ng Sinovac vaccine knowing it has 70+ side effects? Good lord, this is why a lot fo Filipino scientists opt to pursue a career abroad. Kasi in other countries, their opinion matters. I ain't getting that shit in me.

And hello???? Ang mahal kaya ng dose ng Sinovac? Lahat talaga ng mga ganap sa gobyerno puro hindi maka-masa

Eh mas mahal nga Sinovac kaysa sa Pfizer pero mas effective Pfizer kaysa sa Sinovac.

See, palakpakan si Duque! Mas mahal na nga ang napili nya kaysa Pfizer eh 50% efficacy pa. Nakakagalit.

China pa rin talaga kahit mababa ang efficacy rate at maraming side effect. May findings na ba kung effective sa 2nd strain nang Coronavirus ang Sinovac?

Sinovac has no EUA approval from established markets eg. US FDA , EU ; efficacy and safety data not well documented. 
Given low acceptability rate on vaccination in surveys, will the government procurement of Sinovac boost vaccine trust among Filipinos?

Sen. Pangulo Lacson is also mystified over the seeming preference for Sinovac vaccine.

Likewise, I’m quite disturbed too with the government ‘s preference for Sinovac given its high cost and low efficacy rate vs Pfizer and Astra. I don’t think it would help in boosting  up low vaccine trust among Filipinos as shown in surveys.  

There is a pattern favoring Sinovac instead of others without justification or empirical proof... Yun ang parang mali. Also... Expensive.

I hope they would somehow explain bakit Sinovac ang pinagpipilitan kahit less effective.  I deserve to know as I am a tax payer.  It's expensive and less effective.  Bakit po ito?  Bakit po? Bakettttt!!!

Para mabaon tayo lalo sa utang at para maging kabayaran yung mga teritoryo natin. Ganun lang yun.

I realized this government prefers Sinovac despite all the misgivings attached to the vaccine probably because it wants the Covid crisis to go on in this country until 2022 so that it has a reason to postpone the election until charter change is done.

Sinovac will be the season 2 of Dengvaxia. Padaliin kasi may elections pa parating.

Something about LGUs doing everything they can to secure doses from AstraZeneca and Pfizer and there's the national government settling for the Sinovac despite its low efficacy rate isn't sitting right with me.

Navotas conducted among 6,128 respondents about their preferred brand: most preferred is Pfizer/BioNTech at 84.2%. Whereas, Moderna at 6.1%: AstraZeneca at 3.8%, Russia’s Sputnik V at 3.5%...

And Chinese' vaccines Sinovac and Sinopharm got 1.2% percent and 0.4% respectively. 

Makati is looking at procuring vaccines from Pfizer, Janssen, or AstraZeneca for its local inoculation program against COVID-19.

Mayor Binay that the choices of the vaccines were considered upon consultation with residents of the city.

In a tweet, Manila Mayor Francisco "Isko Moreno" Domagoso explained that the city has reached out to US drug makers Pfizer and Moderna for vaccine supply and that they have an established vaccination process on standby.

Iloilo City Mayor Jerry TreƱas has signed a deal with UK drugmaker AstraZeneca for 600,000 doses of coronavirus vaccines for his constituents.

Not even the mayor of Davao, Sara Duterte, would give preference to the Chinese vaccine...said she met online with the United Kingdom (UK) manufacturer AstraZeneca on Friday morning, January 8, and both parties look forward to their agreement.

Pasig city Mayor Vico Sotto did not mention the brand but emphasized he wants "high efficacy."

"Basta may FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approval okay naman po sa'min 'yun. The higher the efficacy mas gusto natin 'yun, kahit sino naman po siguro."

Many of us LGUs signed a tripartite agreement with AstraZeneca and the national government.

Pasig ordered 400K doses (200M pesos). Actual quantity and date of delivery will depend on several factors.

We'll buy from others as well as opportunities arise.

More cities added, announced that they have signed deals for the advance purchase of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

San Juan City, Valenzuela City, Caloocan City...All confirmed their separate agreements with the pharmaceutical company on Sunday.

The list would also include over 30 private companies, has partnered with the Philippine government and British drug maker AstraZeneca.

What is the national government's criteria in choosing which vaccine to procure?! What's in the Sinovac vaccine (compared to others) made our Health Department choose it among others?! Was this brand from China responsible for the "token" vaccines given to the Presidential Security Group and other high ranking officials for free?

It is so fishy why this government is still pushing for Sinovac despite lack of data, lower efficiency, higher price, etc., compared to other vaccine brands i.e. AstraZeneca. Makes me think that there is under the table negotiation going on to get kickback. Salute to LGUs for filling the gap better than Duque.

The national government secured Sinovac doses then lgus bought Astra Seneca instead. It shows there's really something wrong with the former, and the latter shows more concern for the people. This administration is obviously rotten to the core.
