Celebrities Teddy Corpuz, Dawn Zulueta, and Ethel Booba expressed varied reactions to the world’s first COVID-19 vaccine.

It’s Showtime host Teddy Corpuz said that Russia’s discovery of a vaccine for COVID-19 is good news. He then suggested Rodrigo Duterte not to take the risk in trying this vaccine.

Actress Dawn Zulueta also shared her probable reaction once she will get a COVID-19 vaccine through a GIF.

Comedian Ethel Booba tracked back the Dengvaxia vaccine which caused the deaths of several children.

Recently, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that they have approved the world’s first-ever COVID-19 vaccine, the Sputnik V.

This is the news that the world has been waiting for, however, this has drawn various reactions from people. Some are celebrating and are thankful to Russia, while some are worried and afraid as they believe that it was ‘rushed’.

Scientifically, the development of a vaccine takes about 10-15 years. But, the study for this vaccine from the Gamaleya research institute only lasted for less than a year and was immediately approved by the Russian government.

Meanwhile, the Philippines showed a willingness to take part in further clinical trials for the said vaccine. President Rodrigo Duterte even said that he is more than ready to be injected as soon as possible and promised the Filipinos a COVID-free December.

However, Malacañang clarified that once the vaccine will reach the country, it will still undergo many processes. Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque also hypothesized that if the proposed timeline will be followed, the earliest time for Duterte to be injected by this vaccine is on May 1, 2020.
