  • With two COVID-19 vaccines approved for use on minors, several local governments have now opened vaccine registration for them.

    On September 3, 2021, the Philippine Food and Drug Administration announced it has approved Moderna for kids ages 12 to 17. A month prior, FDA approved the use of Pfizer-BioNTech's COVID-19 vaccine among those aged 12 to 15, amending the previous emergency use authorization that allowed the use of the vaccine for those 16 years old and above.

    Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire, however, maintained the country's vaccination strategy needs to prioritize the vulnerable population, which includes the A1 to A5 groups, given the limited supply of vaccines in the Philippines.
