Senator JV Ejercito has cried foul over “twisted” reports that he sought to put an end to the Senate inquiry into the controversial Dengvaxia vaccine program.

“This is unfair and twisted. Never said to stop investigations on Dengvaxia,” Ejercito tweeted, sharing a screenshot of a video titled “JV Ejercito ipapatigil daw ang imbestigasyon sa Dengvaxia” posted by “President Duterte TV.”

Ejercito said he was just like other parents concerned about the welfare of children given the dengue vaccine. His son was among the kids vaccinated with Dengvaxia.

“Amazing how issue on Dengvaxia has been twisted. I am now a protector of the DOH, the doctors and SANOFI. My son was given shots of the vaccine too and this isn’t mentioned at all anymore. I am just as concerned as any parent of the 830k kids. Nag aala din ako sa aking anak,”
