Megaworld Corporation reported that it has vaccinated 95 percent, or 2,300 out of 2,430, of its office-based employees who are mostly in Metro Manila one week after the rollout of its free vaccination program.

The firm said in a statement that these employees are currently assigned in the various office locations of the company such as Eastwood City, Uptown Bonifacio, and McKinley Hill.

Aside from the office-based employees, the company is also expediting the inoculation of its frontliners totaling to around 2,500, particularly mall personnel such as security guards, housekeeping, concierge and parking staff, and residential sales agents who are deployed in various sales offices around the country.

“During the past week, we put our eyes on achieving herd immunity among our office-based employees,” said Megaworld Vice President for Human Resources and Corporate Administration Rafael Antonio Perez.

He added that, “We also look forward to achieving the same for our sales groups and frontliners in our various malls and hotels especially in Metro Manila.” Megaworld piloted its employees’ vaccination program in Arcovia City in Pasig City.

This week, another site will be opened in Uptown Mall as the company sets to roll out the vaccination of its employees’ dependents who have been pre-registered in March.
