Awwww! Find out how Vico Sotto convinced kid to get COVID-19 jab
Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto helped convince a kid to get the COVID-19 vaccine through a mix of humor and concern.
Sotto made the rounds of Pasig’s vaccination sites on Wednesday, February 9, to check the rollout of COVID-19 jabs for 5- to 11-year-olds.
In an Instagram story post, Sotto shared a photo of himself with a kid whose face was blurred. The child, he said, had last minute jitters and did not want to take the COVID-19 vaccine.
“Natakot siya magpabakuna. 5 mins namin inantay sabi ko di ako aalis hanggat di siya nagpapaturok,” the mayor recalled.
Sotto cracked a joke to help calm the kid’s nerves.
“Para lumakas ang loob niya, sabi ko sa kanya: ‘Wag ka mag-alala, 1 second lang masakit yan. Mamayang gabi pa yung SOBRANG SAKIT,” he shared.
Here’s hoping that Sotto’s words helped convince the child to get the COVID-19 jab!
