Available na ang second COVID-19 booster shot para sa mga health workers at senior citizens.

Kahapon, May 18, 2022, inilabas ng Department of Health (DOH) at ng National Vaccination Operations Center (NVOC) ang announcement tungkol sa pag-administer ng second booster shot kontra COVID-19 para sa categories na A1 (health workers) at A2 (senior citizens).

Inaprubrahan ng Food and Drug Administration ang Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) nito.

Nitong Huwebes, May 19, may mga eligible individuals na nagtungo na sa vaccination centers para magpabakuna.

Ano ang guidelines?

  • Kailangang ang first booster vaccine ay isinagawa at least four months ago.
  • Huwag kalimutan ang vaccination card, kung saan nakasaad ang date ng first booster shot.
  • Magdala rin ng valid I.D.

Pahayag ni DOH Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire, dagdag proteksiyon ang second booster, lalo't kumakalat na ang bagong variant ng COVID-19.

Saad ni Vergeire sa isang statement, “The second booster for our health workers and senior citizens will enhance protection given by the first booster and the primary series against all variants, including the recent Omicron subvariant BA.2.12.1.

"Against whatever variant there is out there, the second booster supports the 4-Door strategy.”

Sabi naman ni NVOC Chief Myrna Cabotaje, “This is part of how we fight back against the virus.

"After careful study and consideration of the best available evidence, we shall now roll out effective immediately the second booster for our frontline health workers and senior citizens.”
