The city government of Makati is using a unique randomizer computer program for the brand of COVID-19 vaccine that will be given to its residents, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

“Pwedeng (They may) decline but we won’t know when (their) next schedule (will be),” he added.

Because of the still limited supply of the vaccines, Camiña said the brands in the random computer program are also limited.

“We are using a randomizer computer program depending on the available brands at the time in the [vaccination] site,” he said.

Health experts have urged the public not to be picky with the brand of vaccine as all of them are effective against COVID-19.
