It can be recalled that it was in April 2016 amid the term of Noynoy Aquino when the immunization program started, only a month prior to the 2016 elections. The board held 3 hearings on the Dengvaxia immunization from Nov. 9 to Dec. 12, 2016 before terminating its investigation.

Aquino also attended the Senate investigation into the similar issue last December, where he said he would "try and allay certain fears”" on the debate.
