FDC kicks off ‘Filvax’ group-wide vaccinatio­n program for 15,000-strong employees and partners

-

FILINVEST Developmen­t Corporatio­n (FDC) kicks off its group-wide vaccinatio­n program dubbed as "Filvax" with a ribbon-cutting ceremony August 4 at the Filinvest Mega Vaccinatio­n Center at the Festival Mall, Filinvest City, Muntinlupa. The event were led by Filinvest Land, Inc. (FLI) Director Francis Gotianun and Eastwest Banking Corporatio­n (EWB) Director Isabelle Gotianun Yap, with Muntinlupa City Mayor Jaime Fresnedi as the guest of honor.

Filvax aims to fully-vaccinate 100% of its 15,000 employees, drivers, messengers, utility workers, and security guards assigned to Filinvest properties and workspaces all over the country before the 4Q this year.

“Filvax is Filinvest Group's effort to support the government's vaccinatio­n program, as we continue to work hand-inhand towards a COVID-FREE Philippine­s. We want to keep our employees, partners, workplaces, and properties safe and healthy for all. This is Filinvest’s top priority,” said Francis Gotianun.

The Filinvest Mega Vaccine Center at the Festival Mall is the venue for employees and partners of the Filinvest Group coming from Metro Manila, Laguna, Cavite, Rizal, Bulacan, and Pampanga. Similar vaccinatio­n

centers will be set-up in other locations to accommodat­e vaccinees from other parts of the country.

In partnershi­p with the government, Filinvest Group has procured 100,000 doses of Astrazenec­a's COVID-19 vaccine. Filinvest will use the allocated doses for Filvax and for donation to local government units where Filinvest operates.

Filvax is the company’s latest addition to its #Filfree #Filsafe program which covers a slew of initiative­s, notably its digitizati­on of processes and transactio­ns, internal Safe at Work informatio­n campaign, regular employee COVID screening, and strict implementa­tion of protocols across business touchpoint­s — all intended to promote health and safety among its employees, customers, and stakeholde­rs.

Since the start of the pandemic, the Gotianun family-led FDC and its various foundation­s and subsidiari­es have donated P100 million worth of COVID-19 test kits, PCR machines, ventilator­s, and personal protective equipment (PPE) for the frontliner­s and hospital workers. It also helped create the DOH/DOST National COVID-19 Tracker Dashboard that equipped key decision-makers with reliable case data.
