Primer Group of Companies, an ever-expanding retail and distribution company of the world’s top and premium consumer brands and industrial products and services, announced on March 17, 2021 that they will be providing free COVID-19 vaccines to all employees all over the Philippines.
The company will be covering the cost for these vaccines which will be rolled out with the help of licensed healthcare providers and in accordance with the relevant protocols and procedures set by the national government, local government units, and health authorities.
“Our COVID-19 vaccination efforts revolve around what’s most important to us: the health and safety of all our employees. We believe that this is a huge step forward in bringing this pandemic under control, and getting vaccinated when you are eligible is important to minimize the risk of severe illness from COVID-19,” said Primer Group President and Chief Executive Officer Jimmy L. Thai.
By investing in COVID-19 vaccines, Primer Group aims to uphold its commitment to prioritize every employee’s health and well-being. Titled ‘We Win with Vaccines’ (#WeWinWithVaccines), the company’s vaccination campaign and program aim to not only keep employees and their families safe but also to encourage each individual to do their part in helping the country speed up its economic recovery efforts and build community defense against the disease.
While waiting for the vaccines to arrive, Primer Group delivers continuous efforts to entice more employees to get vaccinated, as employee registration for the company’s vaccination program is currently ongoing. The company continues to implement robust health and safety measures in the workplace and adhere to public health protocols such as wearing face masks and face shields, practicing social distancing, and implementing alternative work arrangements like remote work.
Without a doubt, Primer Group is dedicated to guaranteeing the safety of all employees and extended workforce and contributing to the bounce-back of the Philippine economy.
