MANILA, Philippines — A vaccine for COVID-19, once discovered, should be available to all Filipinos at police stations nationwide, President Rodrigo Duterte said he in a taped press briefing aired lat on Sunday.
“I will give the vaccine to the police and the military. All of you police officers, clean up your stations and make them ready for the day. I pray that it would come. Let’s make it available at police stations,” Duterte said, speaking partly in Filipino.
“[The police stations] are nearer and there are many of them. The only requirement to avail the vaccine is to be a Filipino citizen, nothing more,” he added. “If you want to have an overdose of vaccine, go ahead.”
