Mendoza also showed photos of her getting the shot, where she appeared to be nervous as her eyes were closed and she held a companion’s hand. She can also be seen showing off her bandage and holding a sign with Mandaluyong City’s logo and the words, “I got my COVID-19 vaccine.”

The “Eat Bulaga” host received her COVID-19 jab with her brothers and sisters, as shown in a photo on her Instagram Story, also today. Her siblings can be seen holding signs and posters stating “[One] down, [one] to go” and “This shot is for you.”

“[Siblings] are vaccinated too! Yay,” Mendoza said, while not specifying the brand of vaccine which her family received.
