The National Task Force Against Covid-19 Medical Adviser Dr. Ted Herbosa said that this past Wednesday, not even 1,000 immunocompromised individuals (IMPs) have received their second Covid-19 booster shot.
At a briefing held on April 27, 2022, Herbosa announced that most IMPs are not yet ‘eligible’ to receive a second booster shot because it has been less than three or four months since they were shot with the first booster shot.
“Marami kasing immunocompromised na January or February pa lang na nakuha ‘yung kanilang booster doses, so hindi pa sapat ‘yung interval na tama, yung four months interval from the first [booster shot],” Herbosa said.
Despite this, they hope that the number of individuals who will be vaccinated by the second booster shot will increase in the coming days.
According to Herbosa, health workers and senior citizens are also about to receive their 2nd Covid-19 booster shot.
He also denied news of the re-implementation of the national lockdown, but said it is possible in case the country's health system collapses.
