PRC continues to deploy its bakuna buses to vaccinate more people in the coming weeks to ensure the safety of the individuals, despite the lowering of cases.
Chairman Gordon strongly reiterates the importance of vaccination and continuous testing to prevent COVID-19. According to Sen. Gordon, “This is not the time to be complacent and keep our guard up as COVID-19 can still be easily transmitted to unvaccinated individuals.”
