Senator Bong Go on Tuesday appealed to President Rodrigo Duterte and Senate President Vicente Sotto III for “greater unity in order to ensure transparent and immediate implementation of the national vaccination program against Covid-19.”

“Alang-alang po sa kapakanan ng ating bayan at ng mga mahihirap nating kababayang Pilipino, I am appealing to President Duterte and to Senate President Sotto na magkaisa na lang po tayo para makapag-umpisa na po ng pagbabakuna,” Go said.

“Sinagot lang po ng Pangulo kung ano po ang nabasa niya sa isang column. Hindi ko naman kontrolado ang nasa isipan ng ating Pangulo,” he said.

Moreover, Go announced that Duterte has already directed the vaccine czar, Secretary Carlito Galvez, Jr. to provide details of the vaccine agreements with the Senate President in order to remove doubts and show transparency in the process being undertaken.

“Kausap ko po si Pangulo, at inatasan niya si Secretary Galvez na ipaalam po ang kasunduan kay Senate President Sotto, at nagkausap na rin po kami ni Senate President ukol dito, para magkaroon po ng transparency,” he said.

As for the safety and efficacy issues surrounding the vaccines, Go said such matters should be left with medical and health experts to decide.

“It is up to our medical health experts. Si President po ay nagre-rely din po sa ating medical health experts kung safe ba ito, kung pwede ba iturok o ‘di pwede. Kapag sabihin ng FDA (Food and Drug Administration) na safe. Pero ‘pag sinabi ng FDA na hindi, ‘di po tayo papayag,” Go said.

“Ako naman, importante sa akin ang safety at efficacy ng vaccine na bibilhin natin para makuha natin ang kumpiyansa ng mga Pilipino,” he added.
