MANILA: The Philippines has secured 30 million doses of a Covid-19 vaccine developed by US drug maker Novavax, officials said on Sunday, as the country braces for a surge in infections after a huge religious event.

This is only the second vaccine deal signed by the national government, which has faced growing criticism for its slowness in procuring jabs for the archipelago where nearly half a million infections have been recorded.
