The local medical community urged the government to execrcise more caution about the Russia’s vaccine for the COVID-19 as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) permitted the local use of Chinese medicine approved by Beijing, China to treat or cure mild COVID-19 cases.

President Jose Santiago Jr., the Philippine Medical Association said that the country should not rush to get the “Sputnik V” vaccine that was develop in Russia, since so much is still unknown about its possible side effects.

Two months after the human trials started and it was approved, the medical warning came after.
Santiago said, “We have to really verify what their clinical trials were and, ofcourse, who were their subjects. Then we have to wait for the possible side effects of the vaccine. I think we can still wait. We don’t have to rush to get into the vaccine of Russia.”
Santiago also added, “We have to really see the reports, some trials that they have undergone. We are really not confident with the vaccine of Russia now.”
Even if President Duterte assured the public repeatedly that a COVID-19 vaccine would be available around by year-end, the Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire said that there are regulations that would still be followed

The President was fully informed about their thoroughly study towards the vaccine, she said, “The President knows this, we can assure the public that we are going to study this very critically; we will scrutinize this properly and put it through our regulatory procedures so that we could be certain of it.”
