Walang batas na nagpipilit sa bakuna â DOJ
“As a lawyer he knows that not getting vaccinated is a legal choice; there is no law as yet that compels vaccination against COVID-19, much less criminalizes it (not getting vaccinated), as presently available vaccines are still in their trial phases,” ayon kay Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary Menardo Guevarra.

Walang batas na nagpipilit sa bakuna – DOJ

Danilo Garcia (Pilipino Star Ngayon) - June 23, 2021 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Kinontra ni Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary Menardo Guevarra si Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte na nanakot na ipaaaresto ang mga ayaw magpabakuna sa pagsasabing walang batas na nagpipilit na magpabakuna ang isang Pilipino.

“As a lawyer he knows that not getting vaccinated is a legal choice; there is no law as yet that compels vaccination against COVID-19, much less criminalizes it (not getting vaccinated), as presently available vaccines are still in their trial phases,” ayon kay Guevarra.

Ngunit idinepensa rin niya ang Pangulo sa pagsasabing maaaring gumamit lamang ito ng matapang na salita para higit na maiparating ang pagnanasa na magpabakuna na ang lahat.

“I believe that the President merely used strong words to drive home the need for us to get vaccina­ted and reach herd immunity as soon as possible,” paliwanag ng kalihim.

Nagpaalala si Guevarra na kahit na hindi krimen ang hindi magpabakuna, maaari namang maaresto ang sinuman na lalabag sa quarantine protocols.

“Getting vaccinated is not mandatory but complying with health protocols is mandatory. There is no law or ordinance that penalizes non-vaccination but there are existing laws and ordinances that penalize non-compliance with health protocols,” dagdag pa niya.
