To Raise Confidence in COVID Vaccines Philippines Mayor Has Himself Injected With a Saline Solution
Makes me more confident already
The Department of Health in Central Visayas (DOH-7) clarified to reporters that Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Junard ‘Ahong’ Chan did not receive an actual shot of Sinovac’s COVID-19 vaccine during the city’s vaccine rollout simulation exercise on Mar. 3, 2021.
However, they confirmed that Chan is expected to come back ‘for a second dose’ this March 31 so they ‘can monitor adverse reactions after he was injected with saline solution’, and that these are just ‘part of protocols’.
“That is to tell his constituents that it is the right process,” said Dr. Mary Jean Loreche, spokesperson of DOH-7.
