A photo has been shared hundreds of times on Facebook, Twitter and TikTok alongside a claim that it shows Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo pretending to receive a Covid-19 jab, as her sleeves appear to be rolled down. But the claim is false: the photo in fact shows a doctor and not Robredo getting the vaccine; the doctor was wearing a blouse with a slit on the sleeves through which her arm was injected.
