A total of 800,000 doses of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) vaccines were recently procured by companies of businessman Manuel V. Pangailinan for their personnel and household members of their employees.
The 750,000 doses of those vaccines are from Moderna and 50,000 from AstraZeneca.
“We have offered to all our employees these vaccines. It’s (a) voluntary offer so it’s not compulsory on our employees,” Pangilinan, who also chairs Metro Pacific Investments Corp. (MPIC), said.
MPIC and PLDT Inc. have around 55,000 employees, he added.
Pangilinan said that aside from its employees, the MVP Group will also extend the vaccination program to the members of households of their personnel.
