No special treatment for Coney Reyes: Vico Sotto says ma yet to get COVID-19 jab


Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto assured residents that there’s no place for special treatment for the city’s COVID-19 vaccination program, saying his own mother, actress Coney Reyes, has yet to receive the jab.

In a Facebook live video posted on Monday, April 12, Sotto reminded residents that walk-ins are not allowed at the vaccination sites.

“Pinipilit natin na maging maayos yung sistema… Kung nagkukumpulan tayo, baka doon pa magkahawahan,” he said.

“Nanay ko nga mismo, hindi pa nababakunahan,” Sotto shared, noting that Reyes is already 67 years old and has comorbidities.

“Lumalabas pa siya ‘pag may trabaho. Pero walang palakasan. Dumaan po sa tamang proseso. Nag-fill up siya ng form,” the mayor added.

Sotto said the team in charge of the vaccination will text his mother for the schedule of her vaccination. He expects the appointment to happen either “next week or this weekend”.
