Brief Answer:
Yes, it's okay

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ms, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns

Please note that there is no need to worry as Clindamycin does not contain any Penicillin and is considered as an alternative antibiotic to be used with patients who are allergic to penicillin.

I hope I answered your question.

Regards
