Bong Go lauds FDA’s initiative on making Covid-19 vaccines commercially available

Sen. Bong Go has welcomed Food and Drug Administration’s initiative on making COVID-19 vaccines commercially available in the country. 

In a statement, Go said that the move will provide more options for Filipinos, promoting further the COVID-19 vaccination program.

He, however, asked the FDA to ensure that manufacturers would go through the evaluation and registration process when they apply for a Certificate of Product Registration.

“Experts should be able to assess the safety and efficacy of the vaccines before making them commercially available,” said Go, who chairs the Senate Committee on Health.

“Ang importante ay masigurong ligtas ang mga bakuna para hindi matakot ang ating mga kababayan. Sundin lang ang tamang proseso at huwag pahirapan ang mga mag-aapply sa FDA,” he added.

Task Force Edward, which was recently launched by the FDA, has as its main objective the commercialization of COVID-19 vaccines in the country.

“This initiative will help the current administration to shift its focus from COVID-19 crisis management to a more robust recovery of the national economy,” said the FDA.
