The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) rolls out its Bakuna Bus to vaccinate 333 individuals in Saint Louise De Marillac College of Bogo (SLMCB) and persons deprived of liberty (ODL) in the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) in Bogo City, last October 10, 2021.
PRC Cebu Chapter, through the leadership of Chapter Administrator Vera De Jesus Patel, mobilized its Bakuna Bus along with its staff and volunteers to fully vaccinate 248 individuals, while 84 individuals received their first dose.
“No one should be left behind,” as PRC Chairman and CEO Sen. Dick Gordon stressed the importance of vaccination even for the persons in Jail. “Mahalagang mabakunahan natin ang lahat kasama ang mga nasa kulungan. Ang bakuna ay ang pinaka epektibong proteksyon kontra COVID-19,” Gordon added.
PRC Cebu Chapter continues to deploy its Bakuna Buses in partnership with the local government unit to provide vaccination programs for residents who want to get protected from COVID-19 areas with no access to vaccines.
