This was after Milaor, Camarines Sur Mayor Anthony Reyes got his buttocks injected with the vaccine since he has tattoo markings on his arms.

But Dr. Anna Ong-Lim, Pediatric Infectious Disease Expert made a clarification about it.

At the Laging Handa press briefing, Dr. Lim said that it is not forbidden to vaccinate the arm with a tattoo and said that no contraindication has been recorded yet unless the tattoo is fresh.

“Wala pong contraindication, hindi po bawal mabakunahan ang may mga tattoo kahit doon pa mismo sa braso kung saan nakalagay ‘yung tatoo, puwede naman po,” she said.

The expert said that the doctor who injected the vaccine to Mayor Reyes may have had another reason so he decided to inject the COVID vaccine only on the mayor’s buttocks.

“Maybe siguro maaaring yung isang reason ni doctor kung bakit niya inirekomenda na sa ibang lugar na lang iturok eh baka inisip niya mahirapan sila i-assess yung reaction doon sa area, baka naman napakalaki yung tattoo na yon, baka halos hindi na makilala kung mamamaga man o mamumula,” she said.
