The state-run Clark International Airport Corp. has alloted P400,000 as funds from the agency’s 2021 budget for the procurement and purchase of Covid-19 vaccines for its workers.

“In 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 in a statement.

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 approval or an emergency use authorization (EUA) from the Philippine Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Last week, CIAC workers took the Polymerase chain reaction tests, the first in a series of free quarterly RT-PCR tests for the agency’s employees to help in curbing the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace, Aquino added.
