President Rodrigo Duterte said he was willing to give up his slot to receive a COVID-19 vaccine to someone else.
At his weekly address on Monday, he said his age was one of the reasons why he didn't think the vaccine would do much for him.
"Ako, ok na ako... Ako, magwe-waive ako, magwe-waive ako because 70 above... ano pang makuha mo magsige ka, dream? Dream of what? Living until kingdom come? Ako mag-waive ako, kung sino 'yung may gusto sa slot ko, ibigay ko," he said.
[Translation: I'm okay...I will waive it because at 70 above, what else can you do, dream? Dream of what? Living until kingdom come? I will waive my slot and whoever wants it can take it.]
