MANILA -- The Philippines is set to launch next month a study on mixing China's Sinovac doses with other COVID-19 jabs due to an "unpredictable" supply of vaccines.

The government-funded study will run from June 2021 to November 2022, according to the Department of Science and Technology or DOST, which described the research as a "mix-and-match" of available COVID vaccines in the Philippines.
