Philippine Red Cross Bakuna Bus Operations

The Philippine Red Cross (PRC), in partnership with local governments, has administered more than 20,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccines and boosters in Negros Occidental from 2021 to 2022, fully vaccinating 9,421 persons as of April 3, 2022. This milestone comes at a time when the province has fully lifted mass gathering restrictions in Sagay City, La Carlota City, and E.B. Magalona, Pulupandan, and San Enrique towns.

Last April 1, 2022, Negros Occidental Governor Bong Lacson issued an executive order placing Sagay City, La Carlota City, and the municipalities of E.B. Magalona, Pulupandan, and San Enrique under Alert Level 1. Under Alert Level 1, business establishments and outdoor activities are allowed 100% capacity, subject to the local government’s guidelines. The rest of the province remains under Alert Level 2.

“Patuloy na tutulong ang Philippine Red Cross sa ating gobyerno para labanan ang COVID-19,” PRC Chairman and CEO, Senator Dick Gordon, said.

As it eases Covid-19 restrictions as of April 1, the Philippines has been opened to all nationalities of foreign tourists from all countries as long as they are fully vaccinated.

The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) deployed its Bakuna Bus to Negros Occidental and vaccinated 303 individuals belonging to the A3-A4 priority group last November 21, 2021.

PRC Chairman and CEO Sen. Dick Gordon ordered the deployment of the Bakuna Bus in support of the different local government units (LGU) nationwide to protect the residents from COVID-19. 

“Kailangan mabilis tayo sa pag aksyon lalo na papalapit na ang pasko. Hatid ng Philippine Red Cross ay isang ligtas na pasko sa pamamagitan ng pagbabakuna. Kaya patuloy ang Philippine Red Cross sa pagbabakuna gamit ang 17 Bakuna Buses at 25 Bakuna Centers nationwide,” Sen. Dick Gordon said.

PRC Negros Occidental Chapter continuously supports the LGU in its back-to-back vaccination roll-out at Gaisano City Mall and Brgy 14, Victorias City.  PRC Silay City Branch also conducted a handwashing demonstration and hot meals distribution to 100 children at Purok Sawmill, Brgy Mambulak, Silay City, to intensify PRC’s fight against COVID-19.
