The video of a vendor loudly pouring out her feelings about the ‘no vaccine no ride’ policy has gone viral.
The 'no vaccine no ride' rule was implemented beginning January 17.
The policy is meant to protect the general public from the threat of the coronavirus disease.
Many people, however, did not take the new rule well.

Among them is the vendor who expressed what she felt about the policy and ranted against it.
When asked how she intended to flag down a ride, she answered that she would just walk.
She then said that if only she has the capacity to run for office, she would do so, so she would be able to implement changes.
“Kung ako lang may kakayanan tumakbo, tatakbo ako eh! Bakit? Para maayos ko itong mga vendors dito kasi vendor din ako! Nagtitiyaga akong magtinda, hindi ako umasa sa SAP (Special Amelioration Program) nila. Ito nagtitinda ako ng balut para may pambayad ilaw at tubig,” she said.
The vendor also slammed utility companies like MERALCO, which she claimed to have been increasing their rates even while the pandemic is ongoing.
“Kasi ang MERALCO na iyan, kahit pandemic, taas nang taas ng reading! Alam mo, ang atupagin nila, yung MERALCO! Hindi ang kung anu-anong ginagawa nila habang nakaupo sila,” the vendor lamented.
The pandemic has caused many Filipinos to be more active on social media considering that there are many restrictions when it comes to traveling. People of all ages have started to spend more time on different social media platforms, and stories that touch the emotions would always often go viral.
One of the stories that went viral was that of the case of Jonel Nuezca, a police officer who shot an elderly and her son. It started from an altercation over a property dispute. The police officer was arrested and languished in jail. Later, he was sentenced and eventually, he died while being incarcerated. The case of Nuezca was among the hottest issues on social media for quite a long time.
Another story that has gotten the attention of many social media users was the case of Jang Lucero. She was a beautiful lady Grab driver who was found dead in her car. The injuries that she sustained denoted that she underwent suffering. Justice was somewhat elusive for Jang and her family back then.
