Vice President Leni Robredo said she was not the woman in a viral photo who was vaccinated with sleeves on, calling her critics' posts "ridiculously funny."

The woman in the photo is Flordeliza Grana, a pediatric surgeon at the Amang Rodriguez Memorial Medical Center. The doctor was wearing a "bakuna blouse" and her sleeves had slits, Robredo said.

"Ayoko na sanang patulan pero ang daming nagpapadala ng mga screenshots. Kung hindi kayo busy, pa report nalang please," she said.

The post went viral after President Rodrigo Duterte, during his weekly speech to the nation last Monday, accused Robredo of insinuating that he had gotten vaccinated for COVID-19 ahead of the official rollout that day.

"Salita ka nang salita ka, wala ka naman ginagawa," Duterte said. "You seem to have an angel face but devilish mind."
