Human rights lawyer and senatorial aspirant Jose Manuel "Chel" Diokno on Sunday refuted a news report saying he is pushing for mandatory vaccination, and clarified his stance on the matter. In a statement, Diokno said that during his January 11 interview on ANC, he was asked if he would support a vaccine mandate if he wins the Senate race in Eleksyon 2022. “What I said was that mandatory vaccination can only be done by means of a law, and the law must be constitutional,” he said.

The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases also seeks to implement this mandatory vaccination.
