MANILA, Philippines- Umarangkada na ang  pagtuturok ng ikalawang booster shot laban sa COVID-19 para sa persons with comorbidities nitong Lunes, ayon sa Department of Health (DOH).

Isinagawa ang pagbabakuna sa Metro Manila sa Philippine Children’s Medical Center, Tala Hospital, Valenzuela Medical Center at piling venues sa Makati City.

“DOH [Center for Health Development]-Metro Manila shares that administration of the second booster will begin today April 25, 2022 for immunocompromised individuals in different vaccination sites of the NCR,” pahayag ng ahensya.

“More vaccination sites will start administering 2nd boosters as the days progress,” dagdag nito.

Ayon sa National Vaccination Operations Center (NVOC), target na makapagbakuna ng 690,000 doses sa eligible immunocompromised individuals.

Pwedeng turukan ang persons with comorbidities ng ikalawang booster dose tatlong buwan makalipas ang unang booster shot.

“Operations will initially aim to reach approximately 1-2% of this target, which corresponds to about 7,000 – 13,000 individuals. LGUs will take the lead in gradually expanding the rollout,” sabi ng DOH.

Bukod sa immunocompromised individuals, tuturukan din ng ikalawang booster shot ang senior citizens at healthcare workers.

Subalit sa kasalukuyan, ang inaaprubahan pa lamang ni Health Secretary Francisco Duque III ay ang pagtuturok ng ikalawang booster dose sa persons with comorbidities. RNT/SA
