Take a bow, Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire.

Comedian Joey de Leon has commended the health official for giving the best explanation about the coronavirus vaccines.

The television host echoed Vergeire’s statement that COVID-19 vaccines are considered safe and effective once it passes the Food and Drug Administration approval regardless of the brand.

“Ang pinakamaayos na pagpapaliwanag tungkol sa bakuna para sa akin ay nagmumula kay Dr. Maria Rosario Vergeire. TANDAAN: kahit anong brand pa ng bakuna yan basta inaprubahan ng FDA o Food & Drug Administration, equal footing o pare-pareho nang effective at safe yan!” De Leon tweeted.

In anther Instagram post, De Leon discouraged the public from becoming choosy about the vaccines.

“Tulad the ‘choosy fruit’ na BANANA sa picture, WAG nyong gawin sa BAKUNA!” he said.

Vergerie tried to explain the safety and efficacy of vaccines after Presidential spokesman Harry Roque triggered furor over his statement that people cannot be choosy with the vaccines.

The health official told the public the brand of the vaccines should not be an issue once they are given emergency use approval by regulators. She said people need not to be choosy since all vaccines are on equal footing once they go through the FDA.
