800 INDIVIDUALS VACCINATED WITH THE FIRST DOSE THROUGH PRC BAKUNA BUS

The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) started to roll out its bakuna bus last September 06, 2021, in Isabela province, a total of 800 individuals were vaccinated and received their first dose, which was made possible through the PRC mobile vaccine.

PRC Bakuna Bus was initiated by PRC Chairman and CEO Sen. Dick Gordon and conducted its first deployment during the vaccination of children against polio, measles-rubella. In this time of the pandemic, Sen. Gordon again initiated to convert buses from Victory Liner, Ube Express, and Ceres bus to a mobile vaccination clinic to inoculate more people in far-flung areas.

Sen. Gordon quickly mobilized the PRC Isabela chapter to spearhead the vaccination initiative in Isabela, having administered 478 doses in Tumauini Community Center, 186 in Lanna Community Center, and 135 in Fugu Sur Community Center. These areas are identified through the PGI-IHPO as high risked areas of Tumaini, Cabagan City of Ilagan and Cauayan City.

“Nagawa natin ito noong pagbabakuna kontra polio at measles. Magagawa din natin kontra COVID-19. Through these bakuna buses, we will be able to reach areas where help is needed. We need to do it fast to beat the invisible enemy,” Sen. Dick Gordon said.

PRC Isabela Chapter also conducted livelihood programs for 450 families greatly affected by COVID-19. PRC provided 10,000 cash assistance to help the local community farmers, and other residents jumpstart their lives and get back on their feet.

“Dignity is what we give to these people. This assistance will help them stand up on their feet and go on with their lives,” Sen. Gordon added.
