The Antipolo City government has rolled out the fourth jab or second booster to senior citizens, immunocompromised, and medical health workers, residents or non-city residents, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

The office of Antipolo City Mayor Andrea-Bautista Ynares said specific vaccination sites have been accepting both residents and non-residents who are either immuno-compromised, senior citizens or medical healthworkers, for those availing of the second booster shot.

According to the guidelines set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), eligible to receive the fourth COVID-19 jab are people with certain medical conditions, provided they have the medical clearance; senior citizens, and medical frontliners.


Residents who fall under these categories should bring a valid ID, their vaccination card, and city government issued QR Code which was generated through the Antipolo Bantay COVID-19 Vaccination Registration ( if they have been vaccinated in the city previously.

Those who are non-residents of the city may also be vaccinated provided they bring their vaccination card and valid ID but they should first register through the Antipolo Bantay COVID-19 Vaccination Registration.
