The Presidential Security Group (PSG) has yet to provide information to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about their use of unregistered coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccine last year.
FDA-Director General Rolando Enrique Domingo said that the PSG is not answering their queries regarding the issue.
Last December, PSG Commander Brig. Gen. Jesus Durante III confirmed that some of his personnel were vaccinated against COVID-19 between September to October of last year. During that time, there was still no approved COVID-19 vaccine in the Philippines.
“I have to be frank, as of now, talagang wala pa kong nakukuhang kahit anong impormasyon (I really haven’t gotten any information yet),” said Domingo in an interview over radio DZBB on Saturday, Feb. 21.
“Sa ngayon, wala talagang sumasagot sa amin. Kahit ang Secretary of Health sumusulat sa kanila (Right now, no one is really responding. Even the Secretary of Health already wrote to them),” he added.
Domingo, meanwhile, expressed hope that the PSG will soon cooperate with their investigation.
“Ako ay umaasa na talagang may makukuha tayong impormasyon (I hope we can really get some information soon),” he said.
