Phoeniix Petroleum Philippines said it vaccinated 97 percent of its workforce, with 60 percent of them fully inoculated as part of efforts to help achieve herd immunity.
It said 15 of its stations were served by fully vaccinated station staff. The remaining purchased vaccines were extended to dependents, their families and third-party service providers.
The company said prioritizing safety among employees began as early as last year, where Phoenix was one of the first companies to implement remote and alternative working arrangements.
Phoenix said that as part of COVID-19 response, a strategic communication plan was immediately developed to encourage vaccinations among employees working from home, frontliners running convenience stores and retail shops, and staff stationed at terminal depots and liquefied petroleum gas plants.
“We enlisted the help of our company medical staff and consulted with experts outside the organization to equip ourselves with data,” said Phoenix corporate health, safety and environment supervisor Ronaldo Ulep.
