MARIKINA, CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Marikina Bureau) – A photo published in The Inquirer is making the rounds on social media because netizens were duped into thinking that the lady being vaccinated with Covid-19 vaccine at the Amang Rodriguez Memorial Medical Center in Marikina was Vice President Leni Robredo.
Netizens were also critical that the lady was being inoculated through her unrolled-up sleeve.
But a spokesperson for the hospital told The Adobo Chronicles that the what happened was merely a “symbolic vaccination” and the hospital staff vaccinated was just symbolic of the Vice President.
Robredo had previously said that she would be willing to be among the Filipinos to be vaccinated when the vaccines become available in the country.
It wasn’t clear whether or not she’d be willing to roll up her sleeves when that time comes.
