Global Integrated Contact Facilities (GICF), Inc. steps up its COVID-19 mitigation strategy by providing free COVID-19 vaccines for all its employees.
May 20, 2021 Update:
The company’s procurement of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine was facilitated back in March 2021 and the first batch of doses are expected to arrive in the country in June with the succeeding batches arriving in Q3 of this year.
Just like the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, Moderna uses the technology mRNA and is manufactured in the USA. It also has an efficacy rate upwards of 94%.
GICF's initiative is in keeping with the national government's vaccination program and its efforts to fight the pandemic in the country. The company's own vaccination program covers all of its almost 1,000 employees.
"Ensuring the health and well-being of our employees is our top priority as we value our people as our best asset. This is also our company's contribution to the government's efforts to reach herd immunity the soonest time possible. We are one with the nation in striving to emerge victorious in this pandemic," GICF, Inc. CEO, Mr. Manuel "Beaver" Lopez, Jr. assured.
GICF’s Human Resources Senior Manager, Michael Sabino, who also spearheads the company's COVID-19 management, is urging his fellow employees to avail of the free vaccine.
"At this point, a number of people in our organization still have mixed views about vaccines, but we are hoping that, through our company's continuous vaccination awareness campaign, more will have a better understanding of the benefits of being vaccinated," said Mr. Sabino.
More details of the GICF COVID-19 vaccination program will be announced internally.
