Janno Gibbs recently explained his side after his remark on COVID-19 vaccine received negative comments.
On his Instagram page, the singer apologized for writing “#basurabakuna” in his previous post following the government’s announcement that Metro Manila will shift to the strictest enhanced community quarantine on August 6 to 20.
“I'm sorry for my #basurabakuna statement. I should have explained it. I do not question the efficacy of the vaccine. What i mean is 'the vaccinated' are not being validated w/ the lockdown having no distinction between vaxxed and non vaxxed. Yes I KNOW!!! You can still contract and transmit. But w/ out grave consequences right? I had the idea that we got vaccinated 'So that when we go out in public' we have adequate protection. I did not get vaxxed to stay home. All i'm asking for is consideration.”
Prior to this post, Janno took to his IG account as well to react to the Department of Health’s statement that “there will be no distinction between vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals”.
