You asked for Booster Shot Abroad.

Response to your request

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance this Office does not have the information you have requested. 

We regret to inform you that we cannot add your vaccination record for booster shot taken overseas.

Unfortunately, your vaccination records may not be accessible by the central database which holds the data of recipients of the COVID-19 vaccine from the Philippines. Kindly request for proof of vaccination (i.e. vaccination card/vaccination certificate) from the country where you received your primary dose series or booster shot, provided it has all the necessary information (personal details and vaccination details).

Thank you
