Rey Valeros Jr., 55, is a mariner and natural health advocate. He is the founder of the No to Mandatory Vaccination group and the director of the Anti-Narcotics International Assistance Group.

He has participated in a number of anti-vaccination protests since 2021 and was arrested for violation of local ordinances on Jan. 12, 2022, in Ermita, Manila. Valeros insists that he is not an anti-vaxxer, noting that he has been vaccinated against several diseases throughout his life. However, he opposes mandatory COVID-19 vaccination, incorrectly claiming that the vaccines are still experimental.

In truth, COVID-19 vaccines approved for use by local regulators underwent the three required phases of testing.

He has allied with other anti-COVID-19 vaccine groups which endorse a range of treatments and pharmaceuticals that are not among the prescribed protocols of the World Health Organization, the local Food and Drug Administration, and the Department of Health.

Valeros claims that he had no intention of running for office before the onset of the pandemic but has grown concerned about the protocols imposed on fellow citizens and the limited exploration of alternatives. If elected to the Senate, he says he will strengthen laws that promote natural medicine, intellectual honesty, and internal and external security.
