President Rodrigo Duterte voiced out his dismay that there are people who are still not contented after receiving two vaccine doses against COVID-19
In his prerecorded 'Talk to the People' aired Thursday, September 30, President Rodrigo Duterte firmly rejected the administration of the third dose of COVID-19 vaccine among individuals who are already fully vaccinated.
"Tama na 'yang dalawang doses, huwag ninyong sobrahan. Delikado (Two doses are enough. Don’t get multiple shots. It’s dangerous),” Duterte stated.
The head of state called out to fully vaccinated individuals and warned them that receiving "multiple" shots of coronavirus vaccine is 'dangerous' and ‘not necessary.’ He also added that receiving a booster shot doesn't guarantee 'full' protection against the virus since an individual can still get infected.
“Mayroong iba, may second, third, fourth, fifth. Hindi naman kailangan (Others want second, third, fourth, and fifth [vaccine doses] It’s not even needed). And it does not add really to the full protection of your body. You can even get contaminated again,” he said.
He also told fully vaccinated Filipinos to care for others who have yet to receive the COVID-19 vaccine jabs. As there is still a limited supply of COVID-19 vaccines in the country, getting a third booster shot might deprive others who would want to get inoculated.
“There are a lot of Filipinos who have yet to receive the vaccine. Kindly be so passionate about it, sa kapwa mo tao (your fellow Filipinos),” Duterte stated.
As of Wednesday, September 29, the country has administered a total of 45,147,577 COVID-19 vaccine doses across the archipelago.
About 21,103,317 individuals have been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus, while 24,044,260 others have been administered with the first shot of the lifesaving jab.
The President stated his hopes that the number of fully vaccinated Filipinos reach about 25 million by October.
