Amid experts’ warning on taking unauthorized COVID-19 vaccines, Senate President Vicente Sotto III believed that there is nothing wrong with soldiers getting such without a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) certification.

"I don’t think there’s anything wrong about that. There is no law that says you cannot take any medicine or vaccine that FDA has not approved," told Sotto in an interview.

The Senate President also slammed critics who created “fuss” that “there is even no law [versus] suicide,” to start with.

Moreover, he advised those who question the government’s prioritization of soldiers to fact-check whether public funds are indeed used on this.

"I don’t think government paid for those vaccines they used. I’m sure they were given and administered for free," Sotto chimed in.

"Eh kung donation? Umangal sila sa donor bakit yun gusto nila inuna!" he added.
