The plan was part of the national government’s efforts to make vaccination easier and booster shots more accessible. Starting last January 21, several pharmacies and drugstores in Metro Manila started to roll out booster shots against COVID-19. In addition, drive-thrus vaccination is also now possible.
The initial dry run and residents in Metro Manila can now head to the nearest pharmacy to get their dose of booster shots in a drugstore. As of January 21, booster vaccine brands to be used in vaccination in Metro Manila pharmacies, including AstraZeneca and Sinovac—Pfizer and Moderna, might be used in phase 1 and phase 2 of the drugstore and pharmacy vaccination are successful. Each pharmacy also has different schedules and registration for vaccination.
