The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) Bakuna Centers, in partnership with local governments, has administered more than 40,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccines and boosters in Zamboanga City from 2021 to 2022, fully vaccinating 16,915 persons as of April 1, 2022.
This has been the contribution of the PRC to assist the city government of Zamboanga, which they announced on their Facebook page on April 3, saying that the city is now 90% fully vaccinated.
The Department of Tourism Office in the Zamboanga Peninsula has started promoting tourism in the region again, via its Facebook page, as the Philippines opened the country to fully vaccinated foreign tourists from all countries.
“Patuloy ang partnership ng Philippine Red Cross sa local government units para manatili tayong ligtas sa COVID-19,” the PRC Chairman and CEO, Senator Dick Gordon, said. He also stressed the importance of getting fully vaccinated and getting booster shots.
