The Palace expressed indifference in the proposal of joining President Duterte and Vice President Leni Robredo in one infomercial to encourage Filipinos to get their vaccines against COVID-19.

Presidential spokesman Harry Roque Jr. pointed out that the vice president has earlier raised questions on the efficacy of Chinese-made vaccines, which the President has been openly praising over the ones developed by Western countries.

“In the past, VP Leni questioned the use of Chinese vaccine. So, I think I cannot see that she would endorse all the vaccines. If she can do that, maybe, it can be possible,” Roque said.

On the other hand, Robredo’s spokesman, Barry Gutierrez said the VP “has always been open to any efforts to further encourage our countrymen to get vaccinated.”

“So, if someone really reaches out to her to have a joint infomercial with President Duterte to further entice our countrymen to get vaccinated as soon as possible, she is open to that idea,” he added.
