Concepcion welcomes fresh batch of Astra vaccine for inoculation of private workers


GO Negosyo founder Joey Concepcion, National Task Force Covid-19 chief implementer Carlito Galvez Jr., Health Secretary Francisco Duque III, and Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Chairman Benhur Abalos receive the fourth batch of AstraZeneca vaccine delivery on October 8, 2021, comprising over 600,000 vaccine shots in total.

“We welcome the arrival of the latest batch of AstraZeneca vaccine purchased under the Go Negosyo’s ‘A Dose of Hope’ program. A significant portion of the vaccines will be allocated to LGUs [local government units] for the inoculation of our workers and citizens. This is part of the private sector’s commitment and contribution to the national government’s fight against Covid-19. Having all of our workers vaccinated against Covid-19 will also contribute to the safe reopening of our economy that we are all hoping for in the last quarter of the year,” Concepcion stressed.

Since July 2021, 1.3 million private sector workers have been vaccinated through Go Negosyo’s A Dose of Hope program. Partner companies have ensured their employees’ protection as we push for more mobility for the fully vaccinated. Additionally, over 10,000 employees and dependents from almost 200 micro, small and medium enterprises have been vaccinated too via the Go Negosyo led shared vaccination sites.
