MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Philippines continues to expand its Covid-19 portfolio as more vaccine doses arrive from manufacturers from Asia and Western countries.
The Food and Drug. Administration just announced that it had received an application from a new vaccine manufacturer in Mexico which requires only one dose.
The vaccine, Corona Extra, has been proven safe and effective in clinical trials in Mexico and other Latin American countries.
A spokesperson for the vaccine manufacturer told The Adobo Chronicles that there have been no reported deaths as a result of inoculation with Corona Extra. It has been proven effective in fighting the coronavirus with just the right amount of alcohol content. There were only a few reported side effects, mostly nausea which resolves itself the next morning.
The FDA said that it is currently evaluating all the data submitted by the manufacturer and is expected to decide soon whether or not Corona Extra will be given Emergency Use Authorization in the Philippines.
This is a developing story.
