Veteran talent manager and entertainment reporter Ogie Diaz has received his first dose of anti-coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccine.
In a recent Facebook post, the 51-year-old comedian shared his experience about taking the Sinovac jab.
“Nakapag-first dose na ako ng bakuna. Balik ko after 28 days. Sabi nila, kung ano ang available, ‘yun ang i-grab, kaya hindi na ako choosy,” he said.
He shared the instructions given to him by the nurse who administered the jab. To make sure everything is well, he stayed a little while longer to observe any reactions he might develop as a normal side effect of the vaccine.
“Sabe nila, me mga reactions daw after mabakunahan, kaya yung proseso pagkatapos ng bakuna, yung nurse. pinag-rest ako for 15 minutes, dahil baka mahilo daw ako o sikmurain ako, o sumakit ang ulo ko o kung anuman ang maging epekto sa akin ng sinovac, at least andun pa ako,” he said.
He even dropped a dirty humor at the end of his post.

Diaz is among the first few television personalities who have gone public about having been administered with anti-coronavirus vaccine. ABS-CBN News reporter MJ Felipe had also just recently posted that he has already been vaccinated. His brand was Pfizer.
Meanwhile, actor Mark Anthony Fernandez drew flak on social media for getting his dose while his constituency is still on the roll for immunizing its entire frontline health force. Paranaque City Mayor Edwin Olivares however defended the actor saying the city has already finished almost all of its medical staff and that Fernandez’ comorbidities qualifies him for the jab.
