CIAC employees’ kids get Pfizer vaccine
THE top official of the Clark International Airport Corp. (CIAC) said the children of the agency’s employees aged 12-17 years old were given the COVID-19 vaccine on Monday.
A total of 13 children were inoculated with the Pfizer vaccine and administered by the staff of the Clark Development Corporation’s Health and Sanitation Division.
“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,” said CIAC President and CEO Aaron Aquino.
Aquino added that in accordance with standard procedure, children with comorbidities or immuno-compromised secured clearances first from their doctors before being vaccinated.
He also noted 97 percent of CIAC personnel as of November 21 have already received two doses of anti-COVID vaccines.
The Department of Health (DOH) started pediatric vaccination on November 3 following the planned gradual reopening of schools for limited face-to-face classes.
