Immunocompromised individuals are also allowed to avail of the booster dose in these scheduled dates, provided they can present a medical certificate stating their physician’s recommendation for the second booster dose.

The Pfizer booster is the only available brand to be administered by the city health office in Pasig for the second dose.

The Department of Health (DOH) recommended a second jab of the booster shot to give further protection and deter the grave effects of evolving Covid-19 variants.

The first vaccination rollout began on Monday, April 25, focusing on immunocompromised persons.

Senior citizens and frontliners were given the green light by the DOH for the second booster shot on Wednesday, May 18.
