THE Zamboanga chapter of the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) has opened its vaccination center to accommodate individuals from all priority groups for inoculation against coronavirus disease (Covid-19).

The move of the PRC-Zamboanga Chapter came after they received donations of 300 vials of Moderna vaccine from the Ayala Group of companies for the residents of Zamboanga City.

The donated Moderna vaccines have an equivalent of 3,000 doses.

The PRC-Zamboanga Chapter vaccination center, which was open to the public since Wednesday, June 22, is located at its headquarters along Rizal Street in Zone 4 village, just across the City Health Office.

The local PRC chapter said in a statement that they will accommodate walk-in eligible individuals from all priority groups for primary doses (first and second doses), including first and second booster doses.

Meanwhile, Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco-Salazar has thanked the Ayala Group of Companies for the donation and the PRC-Zamboanga Chapter for facilitating and continuously supporting the local government in response to Covid-19.

Salazar said that the opening of the local PRC vaccination center will boost the inoculation activity of this city. (SunStar Zamboanga)
