PH Red Cross Fleet of Bakuna Bus Jabs Nearly 500k Against Covid, More Trips On The Way

The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) continues to intensify its actions against Covid-19. As of date, the 20 PRC Bakuna Buses, since their deployment in 2021, have administered a total of 488, 201 Covid-19 vaccines and boosters in 151 cities and municipalities across the country. Aside from targeting vulnerable populations (i.e., elderly, students, etc.), the Bakuna buses also aim to deliver vaccine services to workers who are less likely to get vaccinated because of work-related reasons (e.g. schedules).

“Makakaasa ang ating mga kababayan na mananatiling kasangga ng mg lokal na komunidad ang Philippine Red Cross sa pagsugpo sa pandemya. Patuloy naming ilalapit ang aming serbisyo at bakuna sa pamamagitan ng Bakuna Centers at Bakuna Buses sa ating mga kababayan na nasa vulnerable communities,” PRC Chairman and CEO Richard J. Gordon said.

The PRC “Bakuna” Buses, a fleet of buses equipped with a vaccine administration area and supplies, are designed to alleviate the crisis in the accessibility of Covid-19 vaccinations to people in vulnerable situations.

The Bakuna Buses recently visited Hospicio De San Jose, Philippine General Hospital, Far Eastern University, Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) Navotas, Laguna, and Zamboanga, and difficult-to-reach areas in Mindanao. To date, with the assistance of UBE Express, Victory Liner, Ceres Liner, and PRC-owned buses, the PRC “Bakuna” buses have completed a total of 1,220 mobilization trips across the country.
