Walk-ins are allowed, but they will have to follow a “first come, first served” system. Only 1,000 slots will be accommodated per day.

Senior citizens and frontliners who will avail of the second booster shot must have received their first booster dose four months prior.

They must present a vaccination card and their Pasig Pass QR code upon entry.

For frontliners, they must also bring their ID or Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) license.

Immunocompromised individuals are also allowed to avail of the booster dose in these scheduled dates, provided they can present a medical certificate stating their physician’s recommendation for the second booster dose.

The Pfizer booster is the only available brand to be administered by the city health office in Pasig for the second dose.

The Department of Health (DOH) recommended a second jab of the booster shot to give further protection and deter the grave effects of evolving Covid-19 variants.
