The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reiterates our advisory to the public to take extreme caution on the purchase and use of vaccines sold locally or online claiming to be safe and effective in preventing COVID-19.
To date, the FDA has not yet received any application for registration of COVID-19 vaccine. Thus, there is currently no registered vaccine for use against COVID-19. Selling of unregistered vaccines is prohibited. These products have not gone through the registration process of the FDA and have not been issued with proper authorization. The agency cannot guarantee their quality, safety, and efficacy.
The public is encouraged to remain vigilant on the purchase and use of health products. Report any suspicious claims, sale or advertisement claiming as vaccine for COVID-19 to the FDA through email at [email protected] or call at (02) 88095596.
