Anthony Taberna encountered a “good samaritan” who helped him when his sugar levels were decreasing while they were waiting for their turn to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
The radio host shared his heartwarming story on Instagram of how a man offered him his own “baon” so that Anthony could still have his vaccine jab.
“Kahapon bandang alas 3, sa loob ng Placido Elementary School — parang bumagsak ang sugar ko bilang isang Media (media betes). From 10:30 am kasi ay andun kami sa Placido at tinapay lang ang aking inalmusal,” he wrote.
The “Kuyang Manong” who heard of his situation offered him his sandwich while another woman in line gave him water.
“Nakatawid si Tunying bago nag-hypoglycemia! Whew! Salamat po sa inyo Kuyang Manong! Kung sino ka man, alam kong mabuti ang inyong kalooban. Para iabot mo sa iba ang pagkain para sa iyo, it’s really very Christian,” he shared.
Tunying, as he’s fondly called, then advised those who will get their vaccine shots soon to bring their own snacks just in case they will stay in line for a while.
Anthony shared that he was able to get his COVID-19 vaccine jab because he’s part of the A3 group or persons with comorbidities.
“Pasok ang Media-betes at iba pang may comorbidity sa kategorya ng A3. Sinovac ang itinuhog este itinurok sa akin. No problem! Kahit ayaw pa ng iba, kahit duda pa sila — ayos na ayos sakin! Sabi nga ng mga Doktor na kaibigan ko, sa giyera laban sa Covid — ‘the best vaccine is the one that’s available,’” he wrote in another post.
Anthony is just one of the many personalities who have already received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
