Well the pfizer vaccine is inaccessible to them. They'll probably receive one of the adenovirus-vectored vaccines, or one of the Chinese vaccines.

From what I am reading, it appears that the vaccine antibodies in one of the mRNA vaccines don't last very long (talking only months).

And this has always been on my mind:

Are you not worried about a vaccine produced in record time, by a company which has seen 80 law suits since 2000, paid €4.9Bn in fines for criminal and immoral activities, such as illegal testing on children and a CEO who sells shares the same day as the press release?

That would be pfizer...

Religion in the Philippines is marked by a majority of people being adherents of the Christian faith.[2] At least 92% of the population is Christian; about 81% belong to the Catholic Church while about 11% belong to Protestantism, Orthodoxy, Restorationist and Independent Catholicism and other denominations such as Iglesia Filipina Independiente, Iglesia ni Cristo, Seventh-day Adventist Church, United Church of Christ in the Philippines, Members Church of God International (MCGI) and Evangelicals.[2] Officially, the Philippines is a secular nation, with the Constitution guaranteeing separation of church and state, and requiring the government to respect all religious beliefs equally. from,United%20Church%20of%20Christ%20in

The RCC holds itself superior to the Bible and thus has suppressed the reading of Bible for centuries. And it shows in largely Catholic countries...
