Talent manager and showbiz columnist Ogie Diaz received his first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
On his Facebook page, Ogie shared, "Nakapag-first dose na ako ng bakuna. Balik ko after 28 days. Sabi nila, kung ano ang available, yun ang i-grab, kaya hindi na ako choosy."
The columnist relayed that there are some health protocols that were put in place after he was injected the vaccine.
"Sabi nila, me mga reactions daw after mabakunahan, kaya yung proseso pagkatapos ng bakuna, yung nurse. pinag-rest ako for 15 minutes, dahil baka mahilo daw ako o sikmurain ako, o sumakit ang ulo ko o kung anuman ang maging epekto sa akin ng sinovac, at least andun pa ako," he stated.
He also shared his conversation with the nurse after he received his vaccination.
Ogie wrote, "Sabi ng nurse, 'Kumusta po ang pakiramdam nyo, sir?'
Ogie: Ba’t po gano’n?
Nurse: Ay, baket po?
Ogie: Tinigasan ako?”
Various local government units in the Philippines have kicked off their vaccination programs recently.
