POP Jumbo has both Sinovac and Pfizer. Shopping line is long but escorted right to the 2 areas giving the different vacs. 1... ONE person getting vaccinated at each station. Asked for the Pfizer and they asked for our vacation record and..
We showed ours that had the 2 Sinovac jabs. They could not do a booster.
It appears that at this point you have to lie about the two Sinovac jabs if you want the Pfizer. Two Canadians. who are desperate to get the
Pfizer, went to Jumbo, one on Tuesday and one today. Both when asked simply lied about their vaccination history and got the Pfizer.

I simply reported my experience being upfront about vaccinations and what the process is at that time at that place following the rules.

You won't get it now. The third shot will come (Pfizer). Presser is on TV now.

Same as with the 1st and 2nd jab, it will be applied by age groups again. First the elderly and so on.

Jumbo - Puerto Plata - Daily availability of Sinovac and Pfizer according to vaccine workers there yesterday afternoon.

This is first hand information as of yesterday. Of course, they could run out of Pfizer.

Demand seemed very low when I was there. I suspect that just about everyone wanting a vaccine in POP has gotten one.
