‘Plans to stop vaccine trial must be studied’
by PNA

Stopping the clinical trial of potential Sinovac Covid-19 vaccine in the Philippines must be studied first, a health official said.

Department of Health Usec. Maria Rosario Vergeire made this reaction following reports that the clinical trial of Sinovac vaccine in Brazil was halted after a volunteer recipient experienced an “adverse effect”.

We still need to study this. Not because it was claimed in some countries this has adverse effect, we will just stop,” she said.

Vergeire said the DOH experts have to evaluate first the reported “adverse effect” of the Sinovacvaccine.

“It has to be through that manufacturer also that they will inform us and we will have discussions with them and we will have our experts evaluate this if it is really valid and (the trial) has to be stopped first,” Vergeire said.

Local vaccine experts have already cleared the Sinovac Biotech’s vaccine.

The DOH earlier said the company needs to secure approval from Single Joint Research Ethics Board and the Food and Drug Administration before it can conduct clinical trial.
