Reacting to a survey which showed the reluctance of nearly half of Filipinos to take shots of the anti-COVID-19 drug, a pro-vaccination group appealed to the public to trust medical experts amid the deluge of fake news.

Dr. Lulu Bravo, executive director of the Philippine Foundation for Vaccination, concluded that this lack of trust in science is due to misinformation or “fake news.”

“‘Yung agam-agam ng tao, unti-unti ‘yan makikita mong mawawala kung pati ang ating mga experts, kagaya ko, ‘pag dumating ang bakuna aba’y magpapaturok ako… Bawat araw na wala tayong bakuna eh dumadami ang nasasawi,” she said in an interview.

[The public’s doubt will gradually disappear if our experts, for example me, if the vaccine arrives, I want to be inoculated…Every day that we have no vaccine, many die from this disease.]

“Maniwala tayo sa mga tunay na eksperto.”

[Let’s believe the real experts.]
