The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) conducted vaccination programs even on weekdays and inoculated 327 individuals from Brgy. Looc, Mandaue, Cebu and Brgy. Camp 4, Talisay, Cebu, through its Bakuna Buses last October 03, 2021.
Through the directives of PRC Chairman and CEO Sen. Dick Gordon, PRC continues to deploy its bakuna buses in the different areas in Cebu. The Bakuna Bus deployment will enable PRC to conduct vaccination drives in far-flung areas where residents don’t have access to COVID-19 vaccines.
“Tuloy-tuloy ang ating Philippine Red Cross sa pagbabakuna sa mga malalayong lugar. Nagpapasalamat ako sa ating mga bus donors sa pagpapahiram ng mga buses upang mas mapabilis ang ating pagbabakuna sa mga walang kakayahan makapunta sa mga bakuna centers,” Sen. Dick Gordon said.
PRC Cebu chapter headed by its administrator Atty. Vera De Jesus Patel continues to conduct humanitarian initiatives for the residents of Cebu through the deployment of food trucks, hygiene promotion activities, and continuous testing for Cebu residents.
Recently, the PRC Cebu chapter finalized its partnership with Angkas and will soon introduce the home service Saliva RT-PCR test to make it more convenient for clients who want to get tested for COVID-19.
