The Department of Health advises the public to get boosted now instead of waiting for another possible COVID-19 outbreak.
DOH is working to enhance COVID-19 booster uptake in the country as it plans to send out a second booster dose for some specific populations.
According to Health Secretary Francisco Duque, vaccination sites aren't falling and supplies are stable.
Duque also tells the public the possible scenario when COVID-19 surge happens.
“Kapag may surge at doon lang po kayo nagmamadali na magpabakuna, sa totoo lang baka kakaunti masyado yung pwedeng magbakuna,” he said.
“Bakit ka ninyo, kasi puno na naman ang mga backsite tapos kukulangin naman tayo sa frontliners at health workers na mag babakuna dahil nandoon na naman sila sa ospital nangangalaga naman ng mga pasyente,” he added.
So far, 12.7 million Filipinos have received booster shots, which is less than half of the adult population who is eligible.
