During the Senate hearing on immunization on Tuesday, Dela Rosa addressed concerns to the resource speakers from the Department of Health (DOH).
“Hindi ito related sa budget ninyo, pero nanonood kasi ako ng sine. Tatanong ko lang sa inyo, puwede ba 'yung mga lumalabas sa sine na, ‘yung mga producer ng vaccines, sila rin yung nagci-create ng outbreak para mabenta ‘yung kanilang vaccine?” Dela Rosa said.

“The problem w most people is that they confuse wealth and power with intelligence and competency. Cheers to the voters. You managed to elect not only a man w less than half a brain but also zero heart and soul.”
“Fact-based observation indeed! No mention of any scientific evidence. He happened to see them in fictional movies! Fiction and fact are synonyms!”
“ the level of competency of this guy is overwhelming”
“Why is this guy in senate? He could have been a great movie reviewer.”
“I guess Bato is more effective if become a movie director than a senator...”
“Gentle reminder that this guy has a PhD”
“He must have watched a lot of virus outbreak movies. People who voted for this guy must be really proud. LOOOOL”
In a previous report by KAMI, the health department is set to launch a free polio vaccine as a response to the recent outbreak in the country.
