The Department of Health’s (DOH) national logistics partner in the government’s Covid-19 vaccination program has assured that no vaccine has been wasted since the inoculation’s rollout earlier this year.

This, from storage to careful packing and distribution to local governments since April 2021

PharmaServ Express Inc. President Andrian Perez issued the pronouncement after the DOH reported during its budget hearing at the House of Representatives that the handling of cold-chain facilities for Covid-19 vaccines has remained “very well-managed.”

Health Undersecretary Myrna Cabotaje said that from March to 20 August 2021, the DOH recorded 4,528 total wastages in doses, which she described as “very low.”

However, she did not mention when or where the wastage occurred.

Based on the company’s previous experience working with government agencies and private institutions, Perez said PharmaServ Express “will continue to work hard to provide quality and dependable cold-chain management service to every Filipino family, especially during this Covid-19 pandemic.”

Pharmaserv Express worked with the DOH and Unicef in the campaign to stop the measles and polio outbreaks that both occurred in 2019 in various parts of the country. Due to its timely and efficient delivery of vaccines even to far-flung areas of the Philippines, PharmaServ Express helped end the polio outbreak this year.

PharmaServ Express has also provided the cold-chain and logistical needs of various private pharmaceutical companies in the past years.
