GT Capital, unit Metrobank set to start vaccination

Metropolitan Bank & Trust Co. and GT Capital Holdings Inc. said Friday they are expecting 400,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccines that will be made available for employees of each of the Ty-led group of companies, which includes Toyota Motor Philippines, Federal Land, AXA Philippines, Philippine Savings Bank, and others.

The vaccination program will be rolled out in the third quarter this year to be administered by the group-owned Manila Doctors Hospital and ActiveOne Health Inc., a leading corporate clinic and wellness services management.

“We are looking forward to seeing the economy bounce back, so this vaccination program will increase the protection for the health of our employees,” said Gerboy Ortega, head of Metrobank’s human resources management group.

“In keeping with our commitment to be the good hands that our people can depend on, we will prioritize all our front-liners and those with comorbidities,” said Ortega.

He said as the group continuously implements strict health protocols to protect both employees and customers, the vaccination program will further ensure safety of everyone including their family members at home.

“We continue to support programs that contribute to the fight against COVID-19 and mitigate its effects on our country,” said Metrobank president Fabian Dee.

“The multi-million peso funds we have released to support short-term relief and recovery assistance to affected sectors will now include the group’s assistance in the procurement of COVID-19 vaccines and free inoculation for employees,” said Dee.
