To help ramp up the government’s vaccination rollout in the country, five mobile vaccination clinics were deployed by the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) on Thursday in Metro Manila and Metro Cebu.

PRC Chairman and CEO Sen. Richard J. Gordon said that this is in line with the program to support the National Covid-19 Vaccination Deployment, targeting the population below the poverty line.

These five mobile vaccination clinics from UBE Express of the Bert Lina Group of Companies will be deployed to five cities namely; Navotas, Marikina, and Mandaluyong in Metro Manila, and Lapu-Lapu and Mandaue Cities in Metro Cebu.

“The need to vaccinate as many as we can is crucial for us to help the Department of Health [DOH] to reach its goal of herd immunity by the end of the year,” Gordon said.

He stressed that these buses are vital in helping the nation solve its current problem of vaccination hesitancy.

These five buses were previously used in the vaccination of more than 1 million children against polio and measles-rubella.

It would be noted that PRC pioneered the dispatch of mobile vaccination clinics in the country.

The buses are also equipped with a cold-chain system, mobile refrigerator, and vaccine cabinet.
