The senator noted that getting inoculated is not mandatory but vaccines remain one of the most effective ways to be protected from the virus. He also stressed that getting their eligible children vaccinated shall play a crucial role in safely reopening public spaces, including schools, in order for the country to sooner return to normalcy.

Go reiterated his appeal in a video message during the launch of pediatric vaccination held at SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City on Tuesday, February 8. The day before, the government had already kicked off the rollout of vaccines for children aged 5 to 11 years in other sites across Metro Manila.

While the senator acknowledged the concerns raised by parents, he assured them that the decision was made by the government only after careful consideration and consultations with health experts.
