PRC said that these are in PRC Tarlac City Walk Mall; PRC Bataan - Penelco; PRC Zamboanga City Chapter; PRC PLMC Mandaluyong; and PRC Manila Letran.

" These Bakuna Centers now have the green light to vaccinate children without comorbidities aged 12-17 years old. The more people we vaccinate, the closer we are to reaching herd immunity," PRC Chairman and CEO Senator Dick Gordon said.

Gordon mentioned that as how PRC has played a big role in the nationwide measles and polio vaccination in partnership with the Department of Health (DOH) he also hopes that more children can get vaccinated now as they are also at risk.

"The Red Cross has always gone out to bring vaccines to the people, and always assures them of the safety and efficacy of vaccination. Together, let us win our war against COVID-19," he added.
