Mag ayad muna kayu ng tax abiascbend para saan pang ang Philhealth kund di man lang mapapakinabangan ang serbisyo na dapat para sa lahat. Ibalik nio ang 15B, covered lahat ng Pilipino s vaccine at sa side effects nito. Dapat mauna mga nasa position magpavaccine.. para maniwala mga tao na safe Dapat naman talaga libre! Sa buong mundo libre! Pagkatapos nyong hindi mag lockdown agad nung pumutok ang balita, ngayon naman papabayarin nyo pa yung bakuna. Wala ng trabaho mga tao, mahiya naman kayo!

ANCALERTS Wag na kayo mag pa bakuna at lason yang vaccine na yna Saka pano magiging libre yan e di hindi sila kumita yun ngang face mask at face shield dami ng yumaman e yan pa kaya ang hindi pagkakitaan Ano tanga tangahan lang senator? Asus wala na magpapabakuna sanay na tao sa covid yung mga binabalitang namamatay nasaan ba nakalibing na bago ibalita saka dami ng nasa labas mga bata at matanda nagka COVID ba?

What if the side effects are permanent? What happens then? It's important that people are informed of the possible side effects of each vaccine available. Ang ibang bansa naunang magpabakuna ang mga lider nila para ipakita sa mga tao na ligtas. Midle class: magbabayad para mabigyan ng vaccine ang iba Midle class: magbabayad kung sakaling may side effects ung vaccine ng iba Midle class: kelangan bumili sariling vaccine 😂🤣😂
