Las Piñas LGU begins 2nd booster rollout

Las Piñas City Mayor Imelda Aguilar announced the rollout of the second booster shot for immunocompromised individuals against Covid-19 on Wednesday, April 27.

Aguilar encouraged the immunocompromised individuals to receive their second booster shot three months after receiving their first shot as an additional protection against the virus.

She said the immunocompromised individuals, 18 years and above, are entitled to receive their second booster shot at the vaccination sites identified by the city government.

The mayor said those who can avail of the second booster shot are those with HIV, active cancer, undergoing steroids treatment, patients with poor prognosis, and transplant patients.

Aguilar said the second booster shots are available at the SM Center and Southmall from 10 a.m. to 12 noon; University of Perpetual Help System Dalta gym from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and at Village Square from 12 noon to 4 p.m.

She also said there are also vaccination sites in Robinson’s mall (2-4 p.m.) and Villar Sipag Hall (12 noon to 4 p.m.).

Aguilar advised vaccinees to also visit the Las Piñas Facebook page for the schedule in administering the second booster shot.

Dr. Julie Gonzalez, head of the City Health Office (CHO), said vaccinees can receive the same brand of vaccines administered to them (homologous) or a different brand from the first brand they received (heterologous).
