Palace said that there’s no need for President Duterte to take booster shots against COVID-19.

On Wednesday, Malacañang said that there’s no need for President Rodrigo Duterte to take booster shots against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), saying that President Duterte had a high antibody count after completing his COVID-19 vaccination.

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in his regular press briefing that President Duterte wasn’t looking to get booster shots in order to ensure his protection against the coronavirus disease.

According to Roque, the President said in one of his public addresses that his antibody count was checked and it was “very high”.

Roque’s statement came after it was reported that San Juan Representative Ronaldo Zamora had zero antibodies despite completing his two doses of China’s Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine, the same vaccine brand President Duterte received.

It was last July 12 when President Duterte received his second dose of Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine.

According to Roque, President Duterte’s physician was present during his second vaccination but wasn’t shown on camera, adding that the vaccine was administered to the President by Health Secretary Francisco Duque III.

Nung tinurukan po si Presidente, present po yun kanyang personal physician. Hindi po nagpakita sa camera pero he was present. That’s a decision po of his attending physician. Although it was [Health] Secretary [Francisco] Duque who administered the shot, yan po ay isang bagay na between the President and his attending physician,” Roque said when asked why President Rodrigo Duterte only got his second vaccine dose 10 weeks after receiving his first dose.
