The Philippine Red Cross received additional COVID-19 vaccines from the national government on Wednesday, June 23, which would be distributed to six Red Cross vaccination sites all around Metro Manila.
PRC chairman Senator Richard Gordon said the agency received 10,000 doses of CoronaVac, Pfizer and Sputnik V vaccines.
The said vaccines will be distributed to vaccination facilities in the Port Area and Pandacan, Manila; San Lorenzo, Makati; Arcovia City, Pasig; Mandaluyong and Pasay.
Gordon said the Philippine Red Cross would deploy at least 1,000 vaccinators in the Visayas and Mindanao – particularly in the cities of Bacolod, Cagayan de Oro, Davao and Iloilo – to help local governments inoculate more people.
The PRC currently has two vaccination buses in Metro Manila.
Senator Gordon said, “Three more buses will arrive soon. We will also deploy vans so that we can vaccinate people in every nook and corner.”
