MANILA, Philippines- Mahigit 792,000 healthcare workers, senior citizens, immunocompromised at persons with comorbidities ang nabakunahan na ng ikalawang booster ng COVID-19 vaccine.

Sinabi ni Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire nitong Martes na halos 70.5 milyong Pilipino ang fully vaccinated na laban sa COVID-19 hanggang nitong Lunes. Sa bilang na ito, mahigit 9.5 milyon ang adolescents at 3.4 milyon ang mga bata.

Halos 15 milyon naman ang naturukan ng unang booster shot.

“Last week, we started vaccinating booster shots to our immunocompromised adolescent population ages 12 to 17 years old. This week, the National Vaccination Operations Center is now preparing the guidelines for the administration of the first booster or third dose for our general adolescent population,” ani Vergeire sa online media briefing.

Para sa immunocompromised adolescents, pwede silang bakunahan ng unang booster o ikatlong dose “at least 28 days after their second dose of the primary series.”

Para naman sa general adolescent population, pwedeng turukan ng booster “at least five months after their second dose of the primary series.” RNT/SA
