- Several days ago, both Mayor Vico and his older half-brother, LA, denied they are using political connections to get their families vaccinated
- These talks came amid several reports of influential and known personalities getting vaccinated even if they aren’t on the list
Coney Reyes, a veteran actress and the mom of Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto, announced recently on social media that she had been vaccinated at last.
In an Instagram post, the veteran actress is seen holding a cardboard with the sign that says “I got vaccinated.”
According to the mom of Mayor Vico, she followed the entire process and did not receive any preferential treatment even if she is the mother of their city’s mayor.
Coney, who is now 67, is qualified to receive vaccination after the DOH included senior citizens as among the top priorities in the government’s vaccination program.
Mayor Vico earlier declared there would be no preferential treatment in the vaccination program of their city.
The mayor made this declaration after reports surfaced of line skippers in other parts of the nation, comprised mostly of influential persons who are not on the list of those who need to get the vaccines first, were able to get vaccinated.
Coney said she went through the proper protocol and had to wait until she was informed that she is qualified to get the vaccine.
