Century Properties Group Inc. has launched its own vaccination drive to protect its 5,000 employees plus their dependents against COVID-19 after acquiring a total of 26,000 doses of various vaccines.
In a statement, the firm said it has launched the CPG VacciNATION: Covid-Protect our Generation immunization program which will provide 100-percent free vaccines.
This will benefit 5,000 company employees, inorganic employees, accredited sales agents, construction laborers, and accredited third-party service personnel starting this month.
CPG has procured 26,000 doses of vaccines from AstraZeneca, Moderna, Novavax and Covaxin. Of this quantity, 10,000 doses are for CPG workers (2 doses per recipient) while the balance is intended for employee dependents as well as donations to the national government.
The first 10,000 doses from CPG’s orders are scheduled to arrive this July and in August, and the company will administer a majority of its purchased vaccines at its Department of Health and Makati City-registered Bakuna Center: Centuria Medical in Poblacion, Makati—CPG’s flagship private outpatient medical facility.
“The CPG VacciNATION program affirms our company’s commitment to protect our people from COVID-19 and do our share towards achieving herd immunity for the country,” said CPG President and CEO Marco R. Antonio.
He added that, “It is every Filipino’s duty to get vaccinated and protect his family, loved ones, co-workers and fellow citizens.” In support of Makati City’s Bakuna Makati program, CPG VacciNATION kicked off in April with a series of virtual employee townhall meetings to address vaccine hesitancy.
Conducted with the participation of Centuria doctors, Maxicare Philippines, and internal resource speakers, the employee meetings were also accompanied with digital handouts citing credible research about the COVID-19 vaccines.
While the company awaited the arrival of its vaccine orders, CPG also called on its employees to register with their respective local government units and avail of the vaccines ahead if they are already qualified under the government’s priority sectors.
“Our country’s post-pandemic recovery depends on getting as many Filipinos vaccinated. The CPG VacciNATION program is meant to give not just the CPG workforce but also their families immediate protection from COVID-19, and to take their doses conveniently within the safe confines of Centuria Medical Makati,” said CPG Vice Chairman John Victor R. Antonio.
