Locsin won’t name who dropped the ball on Pfizer vaccine delivery

Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. won’t tell who dropped the ball on the supposed 10 million doses of Pfizer -19 vaccine delivery to the Philippines this January.

During the Commission on Appointments’ deliberation on the nomination and ad interim appointment of three Foreign Affairs officials, Senator Panfilo Lacson asked Locsin: “Who dropped the ball?”

Locsin tweeted Tuesday night that someone apparently made a mistake that affected the delivery of Pfizer vaccines.

“I think it’s enough that I really lost my temper because [Ambassador to US] Babe [Romualdez] and I worked really hard, and we don’t like to see our efforts wasted but never mind, I don’t want to lose my temper on Zoom,” Locsin said, responding to Lacson’s query.

“I understand, Mr. Secretary. I had an SMS exchange with Ambassador Romualdez, and you don’t need to tell me because I know now who dropped the ball,” the senator replied.
