MANILA, Philippines — LT Group Inc. (LTG), the holding firm of tycoon Lucio Tan, donated 15,000 doses of AstraZeneca and Moderna vaccines to the people of Pasig City through Mayor Vico Sotto.

In a courtesy call Wednesday, LTG president Michael Tan presented the deed of donation to Sotto covering 10,000 doses of AstraZeneca vaccines administered last August and October and 5,000 doses of Moderna vaccines for use within the next few weeks.

Sotto expressed gratitude to LTG and Tan, saying all vaccines donated by the group were earmarked for persons with disabilities. “Malaking tulong po ito sa ating mga (It’s a big help for our) PWDs,” Sotto said.

Earlier, LTG joined some of the country’s biggest conglomerates in ordering AstraZeneca and Moderna vaccines in cooperation with the national government, business advocacy group Go Negosyo led by Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship Joey Concepcion and the Razon Group’s ICTSI Foundation.

The Lucio Tan Group of Companies has close to 40,000 employees and 14,000 third-party service providers. Aside from inoculating its executives and staff, LTG’s 20 vaccination sites nationwide were also opened to the families and immediate relatives of its employees.
