MANILA, Philippines — The government’s vaccination program to administer COVID-19 booster shots in pharmacies will be expanded to Baguio City starting Wednesday, Malacañang said.

“Tomorrow we will begin the vaccination of booster shots sa mga botika in Baguio City,” Cabinet Secretary and acting presidential spokesman Karlo Nograles said in a briefing on Tuesday.

The government launched the program in select pharmacies starting Jan. 20 in a bid to ramp up vaccinations in the country.

Seven pharmacies in Metro Manila were part of the pilot program.
