Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque Slams Vice Ganda Choosing COVID-19 Vaccines

Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque slams comedian Vice Ganda on Monday, Jan. 18, saying that the public should trust the experts and not the comedians when it comes to the procurement of COVID-19 vaccines.

It will be recalled that Vice Ganda criticized Roque for his statement not to be sensitive to the vaccine brand.

“Sa sabong panlaba nga choosy tayo eh sa bakuna pa kaya. Ano ‘to basta may maisaksak lang?! Vaklang Twoooaahh!!!, ” Vice Ganda Twitter post.

“Mali namang ikumpara ang bakuna sa sabong panlaba. Wala namang supply na ganoon kadami. Kung hindi pagtitiwalaan ang mga expert, na tatlong batches pa ng experts ang magsasabing pwede nating gamitin ‘yan…sino ang ating pagkakatiwalaan? Siguro po, hindi mga komedyante.” Roque replied Vice Ganda Twitter posts.

Roque says national government will reveal price of China’s Sinovac vaccine once deal is finalized.

Roque says President Duterte on Saturday met Chinese State Councilor and Minister of Foreign Affairs Wang Yi at Malacañan Palace in Manila. Wang said China will donate 500,000 doses of Covid-19 vaccine to the Philippines.

Roque says the Philippines is the 20th place in global ranking with the most number of Covid-19 cases at 500,577 total cases.

Roque on vaccines: Hindi dapat natin tinitingan kung saan gawa ang bakuna. Ang dapat tingan kung ito ay ligtas at epektibo.
