MCIA holds 3-day vaccination drive


GMR MEGAWIDE Cebu Airport Corporation, in partnership with the Department of Health and the Lapu-Lapu City Government, has launched a COVID-19 Mobile Vaccination from March 9 to 11.

The three-day vaccination drive is currently taking place at the Terminal 1 Departures Grand Lobby of Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA), from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“We urge the public, especially those traveling through MCIA, to take advantage of this opportunity to get inoculated,” the company said in a statement.

The vaccination hub is open to all individuals and offers First Dose, Second Dose, and Booster (at least three months after primary vaccine) shots. It also accommodates pediatric vaccinations for those aged 12 to 17.

The company asked those who are interested to bring one valid I.D. and old vaccination card (for booster).

In addition to existing safe management measures at the airport, which continue to be necessary in helping MCIA mitigate any spread and keep community transmission low, vaccination is the next key enabler to protect the country and prepare the community to emerge stronger from COVID-19.

The whole MCIA community has been very supportive to the vaccination program of both the national and local Governments, as we also see this as a major driver for the continued recovery of the aviation industry, the company said in a statement.

“We see this move as pivotal now that we have started reopening our air borders to the outside world.” (Press release)
