No politics in getting access to coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccines, Senator Christopher ‘’Bong’’ Go on Tuesday said.
Go, chairman of the Senate health committee,
emphasized that every Filipino would be given access to COVID-19 vaccines with consideration to the order of priority of sectors as determined by authorities and health experts.
He also assured that the vaccination program is based on science and not politics, especially when it comes to providing access to those who need the vaccines.
The senator from Davao guaranteed that the government treats everyone equally regardless of their political views.
Rather than play the blame game, Go urged all government detractors to instead work with the government so the country may immediately recover from the pandemic.
Acknowledging their democratic right to dissent, Go said that it is all right to criticize the government as long as they do not spread misinformation or fake news.
Go said that spreading misinformation would only bring confusion and does not help in the country’s efforts against COVID-19.
