“Eat Bulaga” host Joey de Leon has said that he has no qualms with the brand of vaccine against Covid-19 as long as it is approved by health authorities.

“Ang pinakamaayos na pagpapaliwanag tungkol sa bakuna para sa akin ay nagmumula kay Dr. Maria Rosario Vergeire. TANDAAN: kahit anong brand pa ng bakuna yan basta inaprubahan ng FDA o Food & Drug Administration, equal footing o pare-pareho nang effective at safe yan!” said De Leon on Twitter January 13.

De Leon made the reaction after netizens raised the issue of the right to choose the vaccine they want to use.

Earlier, the government said that the public cannot afford to be choosy on the brand of vaccine due to the large number of people who should be vaccinated.

Some senators and celebrities insisted on the right of individuals to choose the brand of vaccine they wanted to use.
