Vice Ganda seems not delighted with the upcoming vaccine.
The Philippines is looking to begin its Covid-19 vaccination drive next month.
When the first 50,000 doses it has secured from Chinese firm Sinovac are expected to arrive.
According to government officials, the country seeks to vaccinate more than half the population by this year.
The vaccine will be available locally by the third quarter of 2021.
And will be used to inoculate 15 million vulnerable and poor Filipinos, it said.
The agreement was signed on Saturday by Carlito Galvez, a former military general in charge of the Philippines’ strategy to fight the c0r0nav1rus, according to a statement issued by SII’s local partner, Faberco Life Sciences Inc.
Galvez has said the Philippines was negotiating with seven vaccine manufacturers to procure at least 148 million C0’VID-19 shots.
As it seeks to inoculate close to two-thirds of its population this year.
Galvez, however, issued a disclaimer that delivery dates were still “indicative” and that actual delivery could happen at least 1 to 2 weeks earlier or later.
The Department of Health, which helped distribute the Faberco statement to local media, has yet to issue its own statement.
Health Secretary Francisco Duque in a tweet said: “We’re in the final stages of closing agreements with various manufacturers to vaccinate at least 60-70% of the (population)”. He gave no further details.
However, for some, it’s not really good news that there’s a vaccine coming to the country.
Including the ‘Unkabogable’ Vice Ganda.
In his tweet earlier today, he airs out his reaction.
“Sa sabong panlaba nga choosy tayo e sa bakuna pa kaya. Ano to basta may maisaksak lang?! Vaklang twoooaahhh!!!”
Some netizens agree with his statement as far as they concern that Sinovac is only 50 percent effective.
What can you say about this?
