An initial 5,000 health care workers in Quezon City, including non-medical personnel, were lined up to receive their additional coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) vaccine shots on Tuesday.

The designated sites are Rosa Susano Elementary School in Novaliches, Pinyahan Elementary School in Diliman, and Don Alejandro Roces Science Technology High School in Barangay Obrero, open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Department of Health said additional or booster shots shall be given to vaccinees who received their second dose at least six months ago, except for the single-dose Janssen vaccine that is recommended at a three-month interval.

“Our health care workers are the first ones to receive the vaccines when we first launched it in March. Since they are consistently exposed to the virus due to their work, it is important that they be given booster shots for additional protection,” Mayor Joy Belmonte said in a statement.
