Senator Go okays inception of vaccine-making lab

QUEZON, Bukidnon, March 24 (PIA)--“I am in favor of establishing a vaccine-producing laboratory in the country.”

This was the reply of Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go to a question during a press conference in Quezon, Bukidnon on Saturday, March 20, that followed the ribbon-cutting ceremony of a new public market led by the Senator with Mayor Pablo Lorenzo III and Congressman Manuel “Manoy” Zubiri of the province's third district.

Members of the press pointed out that COVID-19 pandemic may stay for long and importing its vaccine is a problem, hence, the country might as well make its own vaccine.

“Yes I am for that idea because our Filipino medical scientists are very capable of producing vaccines,” Senator Bong Go replied, citing that establishing an agency or institute for vaccine-making laboratory makes the country equipped and ready as this coronavirus can mount a comeback that may cause boundless damage and loss of lives in the next generation.
