CLAIM: Robredo says there is no COVID vaccine in 2022
Rating: Missing Context
This viral clip from TikTok (https://firstname.lastname@example.org/video/7060139076174810395), which has garnered almost a thousand shares and has hashtags expressing support for Marcos, shows Leni Robredo saying that there were no vaccines in 2022 twice.
This is missing context.
While in the original video, which is an interview with DZRH News (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhV2L9PaKMw), Robredo does indeed say twice that there were no vaccines in 2022 at the 34:45 mark, the TikTok clip cuts out the context for the remark.
In the lead-up to the clipped portion, Robredo is talking of the efforts to bring vaccinations to the barangay level in order to support the vaccination drive. The context shows that she is speaking of the lack of vaccines and vaccinators at the barangay level, at the grassroots. Most local governments in the country have centralized vaccination centers.
In fact, a cursory news search indicates that while the National Task Force against COVID-19 (NTF) has been eyeing national barangay-based vaccination since December of last year (https://news.abs-cbn.com/news/12/22/21/ph-eyes-barangay-to-barangay-covid-19-vaccination), only a few local government units have seen the rollout of barangay-based vaccination – such as Talisay City (https://ph.news.yahoo.com/barangay-mobile-vaccination-continues-talisay-093100028.html) and Iloilo (https://www.pna.gov.ph/articles/1152397) having started barangay-based vaccination in September of 2021.
Some other LGUs have started rolling out barangay vaccination as recently as the start of February of this year (https://www.sunstar.com.ph/article/1919777/pampanga/local-news/san-simon-rolls-out-vaccine-in-barangays).
