Roque will be joined by DA Secretary William Dar, DOH Undersecretary Ma. Rosario Vergeire, and Philippine Foundation for Vaccination Executive Director Dr. Lulu Bravo
Roque on vaccine tripartite deals: LGUs shall ensure the development and implementation of a local vaccination plan that is aligned with the national gov't deployment and vaccination plan. Kailangan sundin ang geographical at sectoral priorities
Roque: Walang monopoliya ang national government sa pagbili ng mga bakuna
Roque: Lumalabas na sinasabi ng ilan na nagkakaroon ng monopoly sa pagbili ng bakuna maraming nagsasabi na bumibili ang kanya kanyang LGU
Roque: Wala pong monopoly. Sa agreement po kasama ang Astrazeneca, sila ang bibili, sila ang magbabayad, at sila rin ang magbabakuna sa kanilang constituents sangayon sa National Vaccination Plan
Roque: Lahat ng bakuna na ituturok sa ating mga kababayan, lahat ay dumaan sa masusingng proseso upang siguruhin na sila ay ligtas
Roque: Mula Pebrero hanggang Hunyo, walang pilian kasi iisa lang ang bakuna na magiging available, ang galing Tsina. Kung ayaw niyo ng Sinovac, hindi kayo pipilitin
RELATED: The Philippines is set to receive 25 million COVID-19 vaccine doses from Chinese firm Sinovac this year, with the first 50,000 doses available as early as February
Health spokesperson Maria Rosario Vergeire on lack of option to choose vaccine brand: Mayroong informed consent. walang mava-violate. Bibigyan ng information sa bakuna then they will sign the consent
Vergeire: Kung hindi sila sumang-ayon, ilalagay sila sa bottom list so other individuals can receive the vaccine
Vergeire on allowing Filipinos to choose the vaccine brand they want: Mayroon tayong National Immunization Technical Advisory group na binuo para sa COVID-19 at dito po pinaguusapan ang proseso ng pagpapatupad ng deployment ng bakuna sa COVID-19
Vergeire: Any kind of vaccine that will come in the country that was given EUA, equal footing na. Sila ay magiging ligtas at efficacious kaya hindi kailangan mamili
Vergeire: Lahat ng bakuna kapag pumapasok sa ating bansa, sisiguruhin ng FDA na ito ay ligtas ay epektibo
Vergeire: Hindi po kailangan na mamili. Kung ano ang mauuna, atin pong tanggapin iyan
Vergeire on the 1.17 reproduction rate in the country according to OCTA Research: Ito ay halos pareho sa atin. 1.1 sa ngayon, including regional areas
Vergeire: We have interpret cautiously itong mga kaso. We have seen for the past 4 days, tumataas ang kaso compared to the 7-day moving average during the holiday period
Vergeire: This has to be interpreted cautiously kasi nga alam natin during the Holiday, bumaba ang laboratory output by as much as 30%. Ngayon lang po nagno-normalize and this might have some effect. Gusto nating tingnan by another one week
Health Usec Vergeire says she is willing to be inoculated with Sinovac: If we are included in the list of priorities, yes, of course
Vergeire on country’s preparedness on vaccine rollout: Mayroon na tayong system kung ano ang gagamitin na IT system para sa database. Ito ay important because we have to have the list of recipients bago magumpisa ang bakunahan
Vergeire: We are still going to get this from our LGUs kaya hindi natin nakikita na tayo ay magkakaiba ng listahan. Hopefully bago matapos ang January mayroon na tayong complete database
Vergeire on close contacts of Filipina domestic helper in HK detected with the UK COVID-19 variant: All of these close contacts are in quarantine. Nakakuha na rin tayo ng specimens for the whole genome sequencing. Maaaring bukas o sa Huwebes ay lumabas na ang resulta
Philippine Foundation for Vaccination Executive Director Dr. Lulu Bravo: Walang bakuna na 100% safe and efficacious. Ang aming unang titignan ay safety and epekto sa nabigyan nito
Dr. Bravo: Hindi lahat ng mangyayari pagkatapos mong bakunahan ay gawa ng bakuna. Napakaliit ng porsyento na galing ito sa bakuna
Dr. Bravo encourages the public to trust the government’s vaccine experts: Kapag tayo ay maniniwala sa experts, iyon ang magiging batayan para mawala ang ating anxiety
Dr. Bravo: Magpapabakuna ako basta ang bakuna ay dumaan sa tamang proseso ng pagi-imbestiga ng safety at efficacy
Roque says President Duterte's meeting with IATF and taped address to the nation will push through on Wednesday night
Roque: Ang national government handa na siya mismo ang bumili pero ang LGUs dahil may pondo sila at nais nilang tumulong, hindi natin ito minasama at tinanggap natin iyon
Roque on upward trend of COVID-19 cases: Ang nangyari ay nangyari na. Ang hindi nag-observe ng social distancing noong Pasko, Bagong Taon, at Traslacion, nandyan na iyan
Roque: Lahat ng bakuna basta pumasa sa FDA, lahat proven safe and effective. Hindi importante ang brand pero uulitin ko, wala naman pong pilitan. Mawawala lang ang prayoridad
RELATED: Roque earlier said Filipinos will not be forced to get inoculated against the COVID-19, but they cannot be "picky" once a vaccine becomes available for rollout in the country
Roque on Sinovac: All initial 50,000 doses will go to health workers. Mauuna ang priority areas. Ang initial agreement ay uubusin ang health workers sa Pilipinas before we move to the next sector (1/2)
Roque: Kapag naubos ang medical frontliners, pupunta sa indigent senior citizen, other seniors (2/2)
Roque: Nag-propose si Dr. Wong and I supported it. After remaining senior citizen and before indigent population, those with co-morbidities should be prioritized. Matindi ang debate, pero wala pang resolution iyan
Roque on Sinovac: That is the favored vaccine of the President — Chinese or Russian.

Dr. Bravo: 222 years ng inactivated na ginagamit sa pagbabakuna. Since the time on, we have had vaccines that used that inactivated as a way of doing vaccination. Basta’t inactivated, medyo safe iyan (1/2)
Dr. Bravo: Ito ay medyo mas maganda ang record for safety instead of the live. Kasi pag live may possibility na gumawa sya ng sakit na tulad ng sakit (2/2)
Dr. Bravo: What is going to be crucial here, gaano katagal ang immunity na makukuha sa inactivated
Roque: Hindi naman kailangan na ang LGU ang gumastos pero kung gusto nila, hindi tututol ang national government dahil tulong rin iyan sa bansa
Dr. Bravo: Mayroon talagang vaccine failure. Magingat pa rin tayo hangga’t walang herd immunity, meaning 70% of at least of our population has been vaccinated
Dr. Bravo: Hindi pa natin alam kung magkakaroon tayo ng sapat na bakuna kaya importante lang na mabigyan lahat ng nangangailangan at priority. Kung magkakanya-kanya, hindi maganda
Roque: Magkaroon naman po tayo ng tiwala sa ating mga eksperto dahil hindi naman ito ituturok sa atin kung ito ay hindi ligtas
Roque: Kung hindi tayo magitiwala sa eksperto, kanino tayo magtitiwala?
