The comedian was not the first Filipino celebrity who had their COVID-19 vaccine out of the country.
Some celebrities and personalities who took a step ahead included Wil Dasovich, who got vaccinated in his hometown in California. Alice Dixson, who got her first dose of Pfizer vaccine in Canada. Yam Concepcion, who got her first shot of Moderna vaccine in New York. Also, the Megastar, Sharon Cuneta, flew to the United States to get her Moderna vaccine.
With the surging demand for COVID-19 vaccines, but limited supply of being distributed throughout the Philippines. In the priority list are those health and medical professionals, senior citizens, government officials, and people with comorbidities. It is no wonder why Filipinos opt to flock to first-world countries to get vaccinated.
One could only say: “Sana all!”
