The Department of Health (DOH) announced on Thursday that all fully vaccinated adults are eligible to receive the COVID-19 booster shots starting on December 3, 2021.
Those who have completed their primary series of COVID-19 vaccines can be inoculated with the following brands regardless of which vaccines are taken in the first two doses.
Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire said the booster shots may be administered six months after the second dose.
Last month, the healthcare workers and persons with comorbidities were among the first to benefit from the booster shots.
The National Vaccination Operations Center (NVOC) will issue operational guidelines on its implementation. The latest move comes amid the threat of the newly identified Omicron variant of the coronavirus which has spread across Europe.
