Iniulat ni Metro Manila Development Authority Chairman Benhur Abalos, Jr. na maaaring hingin ng gobyerno ang tulong ng mga manlalaro ng Philippine Basketball Association, national athletes, at media influencers upang magbigay kaalaman sa publiko patungkol sa COVID-19 vaccine.
“We really need media influencers if this is the case in some areas, athletes, for example, PBA players,” pahayag ni Chairman Abalos.
Aniya, pareho umano sila ng testimonya ni Metro Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso na dumoble ang antibodies sa katawan matapos mabakunahan ng Sinovac vaccine.
“So, we need media influencers to explain these things. I’ll raise this up, the PBA players and the national athletes could really help here,” paliwanag ni Abalos.
Kamakailan, iminungkahi rin ni Senator Sherwin Gatchalian na kailangang magtulong ang Pangulo, Bise-Presidente, Senate President, Speaker of the House, at iba pang media personalities sa upang kumbinsihin at ipaalam sa publiko ang kabutihang dulot ng pagpapabakuna.
Bukod pa rito, nagbigay din ng suhestiyon si Senator Joel Villanueva na gumawa ng isang infomercial tungkol sa COVID-19 vaccines sina Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte at Bise Presidente Leni Robredo.
