The #WeGotYourVac Immunization Program of the group of companies chaired by business leader Manuel V Pangilinan ramped up its regional rollout with a two-day inoculation activity for PLDT and Smart employees, dependents, and affiliates residing in Cebu Province.
This initiative for the conglomerate’s 60,000-strong workforce is spearheaded by a cross-functional MVP Group Vaccine Task Force. Vaccinations for non-medical employees launched in the first week of July followed Q1 2021 vaccinations for medical frontliners from the Group’s own Metro Pacific Hospitals. The team is looking at a nationwide network of over 30 vaccination sites comprised of regional MVP Group, other Group-wide facilities, and selected malls across the country.
“Our vaccinees, through the essential services we offer groupwide - from hospitals, telecommunications and digital services, electricity, water, tollways and road infrastructure, media, and more -- have been and will continue to be the key source of stability as the Philippines emerges from this global crisis,” MVP Group Chairman Manuel V Pangilinan previously said.
“This vaccination program would greatly help us in our efforts of protecting ourselves against COVID-19. I am thankful that this has reached the provinces to protect more employees amid the renewed community restrictions,” said Marlen Granada, Building Maintenance Engineer, PLDT Visayas Facility Management.
In addition to the PLDT and Smart workforce, among those inoculated with the MVP Group -procured Moderna vaccines at the Robinsons Galleria Cebu vaccination site were employees from ePLDT, ABM Global Solutions, PayMaya, Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway Corp., Global Business Power Corp.
