President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday said he will take China’s Sinopharm vaccine against the coronavirus disease.
“Ang akin is Sinopharm [from] China. Hindi masyado ako maano diyan sa mga produkto ng puti,” Duterte said in a speech at the inauguration of school buildings at the Canumay East National High School and Lawang Bato National High School in Valenzuela City.
Prior to this, Duterte said he does not mind some doctors’ decision to wait for other vaccine brands.
“I have to fly to Villamor because the AstraZeneca, about 478,000 darating. For those of you… who would opt to take that vaccine, fine with me,” the Chief Executive said.
“Wala sa akin yan. Others might prefer other brands. The doctors are very discriminating. They are waiting for Pfizer,” he added.
