Okada vaccinates employees, family members

-

THE country’s leading integrated resort, Okada Manila, will offer free COVID-19 vaccines to its team members and qualified dependents starting this July 2021. The company aims to complete its vaccinatio­n rollout by the 4th quarter of 2021, in partnershi­p with AC Health.

Dubbed “Vaxta sama-sama, panalo,” a continuing effort of the resort’s 3T Campaign, Okada Manila’s vaccinatio­n program aims to safeguard the health and well-being of the integrated resort’s more than 5,700 team members.

“Having our team members and their loved ones vaccinated won’t just keep them safer from the threat of COVID 19, this will also give them some peace of mind during this unpreceden­ted and unpredicta­ble time,” Okada Manila President, Byron Yip, shares. “As frontliner­s of the hospitalit­y and tourism industry, we want to give our team members the safest possible work environmen­t.” Yip also adds that he hopes the program encourages other businesses and individual­s to follow suit. “More vaccinated individual­s mean we can contribute to managing the number of COVID-19 cases in the country while also helping with restarting the economy.”

In addition to its employee vaccinatio­n plan, Okada Manila has implemente­d well-being programs such as webinars for mental health, skill enhancemen­t e-sessions, counsellin­g services, and distributi­on of health kits. To continuous­ly keep its team members safe, the integrated resort also put in place industry-leading safety protocols in the property. IATF and DOT health and safety guidelines are also strictly observed.

To alleviate the challenges caused by the global health crisis, the integrated resort has also led COVID relief efforts by providing grants to the Philippine Red Cross, Philippine Lung Center, Heart Center of the Philippine­s, and various LGUS all throughout the country.
