Frankie Pangilinan, eldest child of Sharon Cuneta and Sen. Kiko Pangilinan, has cleared her name on allegations she skipped the line to get a dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

On Twitter, Frankie denied the allegation.

“Hi, I didn’t want to make this a big deal but have you all ever thought maybe people have health issues you don’t know about,” Frankie’s tweet read.

Then, Frankie declared that she didn’t just jump the queue. She got a text from the Makati City government informing she’s qualified.

“So I went because it’s the responsible thing to do,” she said.

According to Frankie, she meant no harm when she shared her video getting jabbed a few days ago.

“Made a lighthearted quip about it and wanted to be transparent, but even that was misconstrued,” she said. “Everything I’ve done for the past year has been so dramatized, and it’s really tiring guys.”

She then wished her followers to keep safe and stay healthy.

Frankie also encouraged her followers to get vaccinated for their protection.

“I had my own initial qualms about going precisely because I thought about the people who might better qualify, but if we all think like that how are we ever going to achieve herd immunity? And why would I post a video on a public platform if I cut in line??? Please my goodness gracious.”
