Clark agency to buy vaccines for employees

THE Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC) has allotted P400,000 as funds from the agency's 2021 budget for the procurement and purchase of Covid-19 vaccines for its workers.

"On a national scale, the inoculation process is a Herculean task, and so we hope this modest initiative of CIAC helps the government in its continued efforts to fight Covid-19," CIAC President Aaron Aquino said.

He added that a CIAC Task Force on the inoculation program will be created, which will follow guidelines set by the Department of Health on how to obtain and administer the vaccines.

The guidelines will include the approval or an emergency use authorization from the Philippine Food and Drug Administration.

Last week, CIAC workers took polymerase chain reaction tests, the first in a series of free quarterly swab tests for the agency's employees to help curb the spread of the coronavirus in the workplace, Aquino added.
