Gokongwei Group rolls out COVID-19 Protect program 
Thirty-three-year-old Henessy Catajay Pallarca, assistant store manager of Robinsons Supermarket in Tandang Sora, Quezon City, is the first frontliner employee of the Gokongwei Group to be jabbed under the conglomerate's COVID Protect vaccination program. The vaccine rollout is an initiative of the Group to inoculate tens of thousands of its employees and their dependents, along with third-party workers, in support of the government’s goal of attaining herd immunity against COVID-19 in the country.

In line with continuously contributing toward the goal of herd immunity among the Filipino population, Gokongwei Group employees are being provided access to vaccines through its COVID Protect program that aims to inoculate them along with their qualified dependents and even third-party workers. 

The COVID Protect program is implemented in partnership with Reliance United for logistics, distribution and administration of the vaccines. To increase awareness and proper knowledge about COVID-19 vaccination in response to potential vaccine hesitancy, a series of webinars have been rolled out for employees.

“We believe that our people are our most valuable asset as they are the lifeblood of our organization, and we recognize that health and safety is a primary concern,” said Lance Y. Gokongwei, president and chief executive of JG Summit Holdings Inc.
