Vice President Leni Robredo reminded Senator Bong Go that there is no need to challenge her to take the COVID-19 vaccine shot in public because she has already volunteered to do so last year.
“Ang hinahamon ‘yung hindi klaro ang tayo pagdating sa mga bagay, pero ako hindi ako kailangang hamunin kasi ako nga ‘yung nag-vovolunteer,” Robredo said in her radio show on Sunday.
Robredo said it was early December in the same radio program that she declared that she would be willing to have herself vaccinated in public in order to boost the public confidence in vaccines.
Go has challenged Robredo to be vaccinated in public together with President Rodrigo Duterte.
“Mahalaga kasi na ‘yung Pangulo talaga ‘yung manguna. Kung ayaw niya, willing talaga akong manguna,” Robredo said.
Robredo said that recent surveys showing lack of confidence on vaccines must alarm the government to do more.
“Marami pa ring hindi klaro. Kung naging very transparent sana…from the very start, klinaro lahat, ano ‘yung kalagayan, bakit ito ‘yung preference, tingin ko hindi naman magkakaroon ng controversies. Ang bawat controversy hindi nakakatulong, lalong nag-dududa ‘yung tao,” Robredo said. (TDT)
