University employees started to receive their COVID-19 vaccination shots today, June 14, 2021, as the Project Balik Buhay-University of San Carlos Vaccination Supercenter opened this morning. Fr. Pres. Narciso A. Cellan Jr., SVD, D.Comm. (see inset, photo below) blessed the center earlier this morning before it commenced operations.
Project Balik Buhay (PBB) is a partnership between the public and private sectors in response to the request of the Office of the Presidential Assistant for the Visayas, the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) Visayas on COVID-19, and the Department of Health (DOH) Region VII in support of the national government’s national vaccination program.
The PBB-USC Vaccination Supercenter is located at the University’s Talamban Campus and will cater to USC employees from June 14 to 16, after which it will accept those who registered with the PBB program. The center will continue its operations for three months. Based on the PBB dashboard this morning, the center was able to process almost 150 clients in three hours.
