“With a fleet of 17 Bakuna Buses, we were able to vaccinate 2,509 individuals yesterday. It is a joint effort by the Red Cross, the local government unit, and our donors for the Bakuna Bus to hasten our COVID-19 response and protect our fellow Filipinos from COVID-19, ” Philippine Red Cross (PRC) Chairman and CEO Sen Dick Gordon said.
PRC continues the Bakuna Bus deployment and assists the different local governments in its vaccination program. The Bakuna Bus vaccinated 2,509 individuals in Iloilo, Aklan, Capiz, Laguna, Batangas, and Bogo City on November 25, 20211.
To date, PRC has already vaccinated 576, 557 through the 17 Bakuna Buses and 25 Bakuna Centers. This is part of Sen Gordon’s initiative to speed up the vaccination.
