The 31-year-old mayor made the request in Facebook live broadcast, as he explained that some get the jab in their behinds because their arms are covered in tattoos.
While there is nothing wrong with getting the jab in the butt, Sotto said he prefers not to see the photo anymore.
"Ok lang naman na mabakunahan sa puwet, normal yan. Medikal naman ang usapan pero pakiusap huwag niyo na po i-send sa akin. Ang dami ko na pong iniisip, huwag niyo na po idagdag yung puwet ninyo sa iniisip ko," Sotto said as he tried to hold back giggles.
"Pag sa braso, ok lang isend niyo sa akin pero pag mga iba, sa pwet, huwag niyo na po isend," he added.
Taking a photo after getting a COVID-19 vaccine has become a trend in a bid to combat vaccine hesitancy.
So far, over one million people have received COVID-19 vaccines in the Philippines based on the latest tally from the national government.
The country aims to vaccinate at least 70 million people this year.
