More and more China Bank Group employees are getting the life-saving jabs through the China Bank Group COVID-19 Vaccination Program, which has been ongoing since its launch on June 25, 2021.
Based on the China Bank Group's total workforce of 9,843, 35% of employees have been fully vaccinated (first and second dose), while 73% of employees have received their first dose, including those in nearby provinces, as of July 27.
Despite the heavy downpour which caused major flooding in some areas last July 24, those scheduled to be vaccinated trooped to the designated vaccination sites.
“We’re grateful for the willingness of our employees to be vaccinated. This is very important to keep ourselves, our families, and our customers safe as we provide essential service to help rebuild the economy,” said China Bank Human Resources Group Head Roskie Testa.
There are now seven vaccination sites: SMX Mall of Asia, SM Southmall, SM Clark, SM Legazpi, SM Naga, SM Marilao, and SM Iloilo. More provincial vaccination sites will be operationalized as the vaccination program is being rolled out outside Metro Manila.
“We continue to encourage everyone to get vaccinated. Those who are hesitant or anxious about it should consider being immunized for their own protection,” added Testa.
Since the onset of the pandemic, China Bank has made the health and wellbeing of employees and customers the top priority. Alongside the ongoing vaccination program, health and safety measures continue to be strictly implemented in all China Bank branches and offices nationwide
