Health authorities will consider administering the second dose four weeks after the first for COVID-19 vaccines made by Pfizer and Moderna.
This comes as supply issues had caused authorities to delay the second doses by giving them six weeks after the first.
The recommended timing for second doses for Pfizer is three weeks and Moderna is four, but six weeks is still within the range of the studied efficacy level.
In addition, the government had already confirmed that they are expecting 43 million doses this month, so if all goes according to plan, it could be possible.
This also means that more people will be fully vaccinated about two weeks sooner than expected.
This will help the government significantly in achieving the goal of having 70 percent of the population fully vaccinated by the end of October.
