Former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III backed the use of Dengvaxia vaccine amid the rising dengue cases in the country.

KAMI learned that for Aquino, the government should allow the vaccine if it would help the Filipinos.

"Kung wala naman talagang idinudulot na masama itong gamot na ito at nakakatulong, bakit nga hindi gamitin?" Aquino said on State of the Nation with Jessica Soho.

"Maibsan man lang 'yung nadadama ng marami nating kababayan na nasa daang libo nang tinamaan nitong dengue," he added.
