Ready to be a guinea pig! Along Malapitan eases Caloocan residents’ concerns about COVID-19 vaccine
Caloocan Rep. Along Malapitan announced that he’s willing to be injected with the COVID-19 vaccine in public to ease residents’ doubts about its safety and efficacy.
Malapitan said he’s willing to be inoculated with any brand of COVID-19 vaccine that has been cleared for use by the Food and Drug Administration.
“Asahan niyo pong magpapabakuna ako para sa kapanatagan ninyong lahat, kung ano man po ang maunang bakuna, sa kongreso o sa ating lungsod, handa po akong maging testingan ninyo,” he said during a visit to Natividad Subdivision Phase 2 on February 20.
“Bilang mga lider ng inyong komunidad, inaanyayahan ko kayong makiisa at manguna upang wakasan ang banta ng COVID-19 sa Caloocan,” Malapitan added.
The city government of Caloocan has entered into a tripartite agreement with the national government and AstraZeneca for the purchase of COVID-19 vaccines.
