A TOTAL of 13 children aged 12-17 and who are kids of employees at Clark International Airport Corp. (CIAC) were inoculated with the Pfizer vaccine, administered by the staff of the Clark Development Corporation's Health and Sanitation Division on Monday, November 22.

“We ensured the welfare and protection of our employees against Covid-19 by also including their children to be given the same protection against the disease,” CIAC President and CEO Aaron Aquino said.

He added that in accordance with standard procedure, children with comorbidities or immuno-compromised secured clearances first from their doctors before being vaccinated.

Aquino also noted 97 percent of CIAC personnel as of November 21 have already received two doses of anti-Covid vaccines.

The Department of Health started pediatric vaccination on November 3 following the planned gradual reopening of schools for limited face-to-face classes.
