The oldest of the Tulfo siblings confessed that he has already received vaccination against the new coronavirus.
Ramon Tulfo, on his February 22 column in Manila Times, revealed that he was vaccinated by the Sinopharm vaccine last October, together with some public officials whose names he did not disclose.
He also confirmed that some members of the Presidential Security Group also received the Sinopharm vaccine.
He, however, did not divulge his source on how he got the vaccine early.
The broadcaster also shared that he applied to be one of the distributors of the said vaccine in the country.
Mon also revealed that President Rodrigo Duterte said in a jest that he is interested by the Sinopharm vaccine after hearing the columnist’s story about the little side effects of the said vaccine.
But the President was advised by some officials that the Sinopharm vaccine is not yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration and would be violating protocols if he received it last year.
