These Filipino Celebrities Join the Call to Vaccinate

Health & Well-being

MANILA, Philippines—Amid the bleakness of the COVID-19 pandemic, Filipinos have continued to look forward to a normal life—being able to hug loved ones once more, going back to school and the office, traveling anywhere, celebrating holidays and milestones, and just being able to go out whenever one wants to, without the fear or paranoia of contracting the disease and spreading it to people within our circle.

No matter how long and difficult the past months have been, Filipinos have never allowed themselves to be defeated by all these. This is why a growing list of celebrities have chosen to be proactive about their health by being vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus and are now sharing their stories.

For these personalities, winning the battle against COVID-19 calls for smart choices, most important of which is getting vaccinated.

On Instagram, actress Dimples Romana recalled her dialogue with son, Alonzo, when she was asked how he could see his classmates. She explained that “today, fighting means staying home, praying, following safety rules, and getting vaccinated.” Romana offers this explanation on why the need for vaccine: “Just think of it this way, kung sa common ubo nga, sipon at sakit ng ulo, we take Tuseran Forte di ba? Ibang-iba naman kapag nagka-COVID ka, ibang kalaban eh! Ang bilis makahawa at di nakikita! Get vaccinated please!”

Posting a photo of herself getting vaccinated along with the Olympics-bound delegates, sports journalist Gretchen Ho  wrote, “Kahit may pandemya, pursigido tayo sa trabaho kaya dapat maging malakas at healthy. We can all contribute to ending this pandemic by taking good care of ourselves and being responsible.”

With the prolonged pandemic being challenging for everyone, a positive outlook can make a difference. Motivational speaker and coach Lyqa Maravilla acknowledges that “being stuck at home during the pandemic can leave us feeling helpless and hopeless.” She adds, “One thing I keep asking myself is, what can I do? One thing is to get vaccinated. Don’t just do it for yourself. Do it for your loved ones. Do it for the health care workers. Do it for our country.”

YouTuber Mommy Haidee also weighed in, reminding followers to “Do it for yourself and your loved ones. Any protection is better than nothing at all,” as she showed off her own vaccination card.

A normal future is something that everyone looks forward to. Radio and TV host Show Suzuki posted about his dog Gonta greeting him with a smile after his vaccination. “He knows that he can look forward to more adventures again in the near future.” He adds, “Your health should always be your top priority especially if you have people/dogs who rely on you.”

Aside from vaccinations, these personalities proactively manage their health, including taking Tuseran Forte to address common ailments. Clinically proven to be effective against cough, colds, and headache, Tuseran Forte has helped Filipinos, especially these celebrities in ensuring they stay on top of everything at hindi nagpapatalo sa sakit.

In these times of uncertainty, we have to be proactive about our health. By getting vaccinated and being prepared against common illnesses, we can power through health obstacles and get on with our daily lives.

Ang Pilipino, ‘di papatalo sa sakit. Magpabakuna para talunin ang COVID, mag-gamot sa ubo, sipon at headache sa tulong ng Tuseran Forte!
