Dengvaxia scare is all politics - PNOY

The Dengvaxia vaccine has no problem, says former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino. He says that it’s politics how the people or his opposition creates issues to scare the Filipino people from the Dengvaxia vaccine when there is nothing to be scared of in the first place.

Maliwanag po, may mga kalaban tayo sa pulitika na lging sasabihing mali ang ating ginawa o ‘di ginawa. Gumawa sila ng isyu kung saan dapat walang isyu,” Aquino said.



Blame the anti-Dengvaxia people

Aquino even goes further in his criticism and says that because some people have been anti-Dengvaxia, it has even come to a point where some Filipino people have also been against other vaccines that are supposed to protect particularly young children from many diseases.

Maliwanag naman po, 17 ang baka may risko na magkaroon ng Grades I at II na dengue, na hindi man lang pinaka-malubha. Binalot nila ng intriga, pagdududa, at takot ang mga bakuna. Pinakaba ang 837,902 at ang buong sambayanan, kaya pati ang bakunang gaya ng para sa tigdas ay inaayawan,” Aquino said.

Even the Department of Health has reported the plunge of number of parents taking their children to clinics to get vaccinated. This came immediately after the dengvaxia scare.

Mga kababayan, kayo na po ang saksi sa mga ulat ng outbreak sa bansa. Kayo, ang aking mga boss, ang siyang makakapagsabi kung sino ang tunay na nasa tama. Kayo nap o ang humusga,” Aquino said.



Aquino, et. al facing charges

Aquino, along with former budget secretary Butch Abad and former health secretary Janet Garin are currently facing graft, grave misconduct and technical malversation charges over the dengvaxia.

They implemented the Dengvaxia, or anti-dengue immunization program in 2016. And during that time it was not fully cleared by the World Health Organization. However, the vaccine has recently been cleared and reported that they are safe for consumption.
