Pfizer vaccine boosters were administered to 79 UP Manila constituents and family members. 

       This is CAS’ 4th vaccination rollout in partnership with the Manila LGU since 2021, responding to the clamor of its faculty members, administrative and support staff.

With the re-opening of face-to-face classes on campus, UP Manila recognizes the life-saving benefits of vaccines and encourages its faculty, students, and staff to get vaccinated and boosted as the best long-term solution to end the pandemic.
