Why Leni Robredo Is Quiet On The Dengue Vaccine Mess

00D57852-C454-46AE-9B1C-3EE6065C6BE7MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) –  It is very unusual for Vice President Leni Robredo to remain quiet on issues of national concern — whether it be Duterte’s War on Drugs or the rehabilitation of Marawi City.

So for Robredo to not issue a statement on the recent scandal involving the Aquino administration’s approval to vaccinate some 700,000 school kids with a new Dengue vaccine  puzzles both supporters and critics of the VP.

We now know that the Dengue vaccine — as admitted by the manufacturer — has the potential of causing more serious Dengue disease among those who had not had a previous Dengue infection.

The Aquino administration approved the Dengue vaccination even prior to the approval/recommendation of the World Health Organization (WHO).

The Adobo Chronicles caught up with Robredo on as bus she was in, bound for her hometown of Naga City, and we asked her why she hasn’t said a word about the big scandal.

”Well, I choose which important issues to comment on,” the VP said. “It would be a waste of my time to issue a statement on a trivial thing like dried fish.”
