Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto did a Facebook Live to present the medical updates for the city of Pasig. In Sotto's Live, he explained that the COVID-19 vaccination protocol must be followed and everyone has to go through the official channels.
Sotto emphasized that there is no "palakasan" when it comes to getting the COVID-19 vaccination. The rules will apply to everyone and there will be no exemptions.
The mayor also revealed that his mother, famous actress, Coney Reyes, has not been vaccinated. As she is a senior citizen and has comorbidities, Reyes is eligible to be inoculated against COVID-19. However, as there is a process to be followed, his mother has to wait for her schedule for the vaccination just like everyone else.
