Roque needs Duterte’s blessing before receiving Sinovac shot
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said he is more than willing to take the Chinese-made vaccine doses on his arm, but he would need to seek clearance from his boss first.
He expressed confidence in the Sinovac vaccines shortly after the Food and Drug Administration announced that the doses have been given emergency use approval on Monday, February 22.
“Naku, handang-handa na po ako. Kung papayagan po ako ng Presidente at papayagan ako ng National Task Force, magpapauna po tayo,” Roque said during his press briefing.
Roque, who is not a medical frontliner, needs to jump the line if he wants to get vaccinated first.
