Tarlac Governor Susan Yap on Tuesday sought to allay fears among health workers and the public about the efficacy of Covid-19 vaccines, especially those made by Chinese pharmaceutical Sinovac.

During her speech at the symbolic vaccination ceremony at Tarlac Provincial Hospital, the governor said there was nothing wrong with China-made vaccines, praising the “advancement of Chinese medicines.”

“It’s not all about those branding, but in terms of efficacy in protecting our people, I think what has been brought to us last Saturday will protect our healthcare workers,” Yap said.

She also assured her constituents that the provincial government was ready for the vaccine rollout.

Yap thanked the Department of Health for its support “like a big brother who helps us and tells us what we must do.”

She advised the public to “listen to the experts.”

“When you hear unpleasant words regarding it, look at the clinical studies, they have been there already,” Yap said.
