Pasig City ordered 400,000 doses of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines worth around P100 million, Mayor Vico Sotto said in a report by GMA News.

"Many of us LGUs signed a tripartite agreement with AstraZeneca and the national govt yesterday. Pasig ordered 400K doses (*100M pesos). Actual quantity & date of delivery will depend on several factors," he said in a tweet.

Sotto said the LGU will also buy vaccines from other vaccine makers as opportunities arise.

"We'll buy from others too as opportunities arise," he said.

Over the weekend, some LGUs announced they have signed deals to buy AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines: Iloilo City for 600,000 doses; Caloocan City for 600,000 doses; Vigan City for 100,000 doses; and Valenzuela City for 640,000 doses.
