Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, January 28) — Adults fully vaccinated with Sinopharm as their primary series can receive Sinopharm, AstraZeneca, Moderna, and Pfizer for their booster shot, Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire said on Friday.

She added Russia-made COVID-19 vaccine Sputnik Light was also granted an emergency use authorization to be used as the booster dose for those who received AstraZeneca, Moderna, Pfizer, and Sinovac shots.

The official, however, said Sinopharm and Sputnik Light cannot be administered as booster shots to pregnant and breastfeeding mothers.
