Duque, who was already 64 years old, was asked by Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque in a press conference in Davao City if he will be inoculated with AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine that just arrived in the Philippines last Thursday night.

According to Duque, he will be inoculated with AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine as a doctor who also administered the vaccine, faced patients, and inspected hospitals, healthcare facilities, and temporary treatment and monitoring facilities as well.

Ang maganda po sa AstraZeneca, siya po ay pwede rin sa mga 60 years old and above. At ang sagot ko sa katanungan ni spox (Harry Roque) ay magpapabakuna na rin po ako ng AstraZeneca dahil bilang isang doctor na nagbabakuna din at humaharap sa mga pasyente at nagiinspect ng mga healthcare facilities, mga hospital, mga temporary treatment and monitoring facilities ay atin pong pinupuntahan sa bawat pagkakataon na kinakailangan tayo bumisita at suriin ang pandemic response ng atin pong gobyerno,” Duque said.

The Philippines received an initial 487,200 AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine doses from the World Health Organization-led COVAX facility.

Earlier, the Department of Health said that Duque won’t get Sinovac’s CoronaVac COVID-19 vaccine because of the age restriction on its use as recommended by the country’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Upon giving an emergency use authorization (EUA) to Sinovac’s CoronaVac, the Food and Drug Administration recommended that it only be administered to clinically healthy individuals aged 18 to 59 years old.
