The House committee on health will probe the Duterte administration’s coronavirus vaccination plan on Monday, January 18.

The House panel invited Philippine vaccine czar and National Task Force Against COVID-19 chief implementer Carlito Galvez Jr, Health Secretary Francisco Duque III, and other government officials and medical experts. 

Parañaque City 2nd District Representative Joy Tambunting and Sultan Kudarat 1st District Representative Princess Rihan Sakaluran earlier filed resolutions for a congressional inquiry to shed light on the government’s plan and ensure there would be fair and equal distribution of the vaccines.

The Makabayan bloc earlier called for a House probe into the Presidential Security Group’s use of smuggled coronavirus vaccines, despite President Rodrigo Duterte barring his security aides from divulging information on the matter.
