Senator Ping Lacson continues to deny nor confirm the information that he was vaccinated against the coronavirus disease as revealed by Senate President Tito Sotto.
The senator said that whether he confirms it or not is of little significance or no significance at all.
“We are targeting 60 million and we need something like P73.2 billion according to Dominguez,” he told the media. “I think we should focus more on that rather than whether or not I or Majority Leader Romualdez of the House had our vaccine injections.”
“If I had my inoculation, I’m still here talking to you and I don’t look ill naman. Let’s leave it at that,” he added.
Lacson said that the attention should focus now on how the government plans to vaccinate the majority of Filipino population.
The health department previously said that there is no approved vaccine yet for COVID-19 in the country and news about lawmakers getting a vaccine shot is ‘not a good way to go’.
