Allowing fully vaccinated senior citizens to go out opposed by Malacañang

Malacañang is not in favor of a senator’s proposal to allow fully vaccinated senior citizens to go out.

At the same time, Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque clarified that the ban on senior citizens from leaving home is not “absolute” because they are allowed to buy their necessities and exercise.

But he said the permanent release of senior citizens over the age of 65 depends on whether can be achieved.

He said it is not only those who have the vaccine who should have protection, if not the majority of the population, because the vaccine still does not guarantee that COVID-19 will not hit.

He said the vaccine only guarantees that they will not get seriously ill, but the situation of the elderly is different.

Roque also reminded that the effect of the vaccine on a healthy youth is different than that of an adult, so senior citizens should still “stay at home

Last week, Senator Cynthia Villar supported allowing senior citizens who completed their against COVID-19.

“Bakit sila open sa lahat? Tayo e ang higpit higpit, ‘di ba?” she added.

But Senator Binay explained that the US and Israel will soon achieve their “herd immunity” against COVID-19.

Binay said that it is possible to allow the  to leave the house once the on the A4 priority list have been vaccinated.

“Siguro ‘pag nandiyan na ‘yung A4, because ‘yung seniors natin, pwede silang mag-spread ng virus, kasi ‘di ba, kahit vaccinated ka na, you can still get the virus, asymptomatic, but you’re spreading,” Binay explained.
