According to Acting presidential spokesperson and Communications Secretary Martin Andanar he said that the country’s rollout for the second booster shot is response to waning immunity.
He said that an additional booster shot will help prevent people from severe COVID-19 infections and prevent death.
In a press release he said:
“Our goal is to reinforce the shield that will protect us from any variants already here and that might come in later on. Prevention is better than cure
The administration of the fourth dose, or second booster shot, of Covid-19 vaccines has nothing to do with the potential increase in cases in May 2022,
As experts warn of an uptick in cases, we must continue to adhere to minimum public health standards such as wearing of masks, washing of hands, observing physical distancing and ramping up vaccination/getting booster shots,”
