Free COVID-19 immunization to cover Regular Employees and Qualified Dependents,
Inorganic Employees, Construction Laborers, and Accredited Third-Party Service Personnel
[July 2021] To contribute to nationwide efforts to reach herd immunity and economic recovery, the listed Philippine real estate firm Century Properties Group (CPG) has launched the CPG VacciNATION: Covid-Protect our Generation immunization program. This will provide 100-percent free vaccines to 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 month of July and in August, and the company will administer the 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. It is every Filipino’s duty to get vaccinated and protect his family, loved ones, co-workers, and fellow citizens,” said company President and CEO Marco R. Antonio, who is co-leading the program with CPG’s Human Resources Group Head Richelle T. Cordero, company Vice Chairman John Victor R. Antonio, and Managing Director Carlo R. Antonio.
In support of Makati City’s Bakuna Makati program, CPG VacciNATION kicked off in April with a series of virtual employee town hall meetings to address vaccine hesitancy. Conducted with the participation of Centuria doctors, Maxicare Philippines, and internal resource speakers, the employee meetings were also accompanied by 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.
Centuria Medical was certified as a vaccination site of the City Government of Makati on July 7, 2021, having complied with the requirements under City ordinance No. 2021-094, COVID-19 Vaccination Site Standardization Protocol and Registration Process, and the approval of the DOH based on its Assessment Tool for Identification of COVID-19 Vaccination Implementing Units and Vaccination Sites.
CPG has been at the forefront of safeguarding the health of its workforce since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. With 29 buildings completed post public listing, 88 buildings under property management, and 7 affordable housing communities under development, the company tripled on its health and safety protocols to protect its workforce, service front liners, and customers. This includes investments in PPE and advanced disinfection equipment, rigorous COVID-19 testing for employees every two weeks, and providing living quarters to construction laborers and critical front liners during the height of the strict lockdowns. #
