A LAWMAKER has asked the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to approve the commercial use of various coronavirus vaccines.  

In a statement, Party-list Rep. Edwin L. Gardiola noted that while the palace had extended the state of calamity until year-end, the government should eventually approve the vaccines for commercial use. 

The extension allowed the continued emergency use of the vaccines. 

Mr. Gardiola said the Department of Health and FDA should start acquiring bivalent vaccine boosters as soon as possible.  

“There is no official word yet on how soon we can have these bivalent booster vaccines here in the Philippines,” the congressman said, referring to newer vaccines that offer better protection against more contagious variants. — Matthew Carl L. Montecillo
