President Rodrigo Duterte said poor families receiving government aid will get priority access to coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccine.

Middle-class households and government troops will also be prioritized, Duterte said in a pre-taped public address Friday morning.

“Ito ang i-guarantee ko: Ang listahan ng mga tao na makatanggap ng pera noon sa hirap ang una na bibigyan ng assistance, iyon ang category natin. Ang mauna ‘yung walang-wala at saka of course those in the hospitals, ‘yung mga sick or drying. Ang una talaga ‘yung mga tao sa listahan na tumatanggap ng assistance sa gobyerno,” according to him.

“Pangalawa, ‘yung middle-income. Libre ito. Hindi ko ito ipagbili. Iyong third… itong mga military na ito pobre ‘to. Mauna rin kayo. And also my military and my police because I need a strong backbone. The backbone of my administration is the uniformed personnel of government,” he added.

Duterte said that he will not provide free Covid-19 vaccines to the rich.

“Iyong mga mayaman, huwag na ninyo akong isipin kasi hindi ako nag-iisip sa inyo. Sorry na lang. Kayo kung maka-afford,” he added.
