Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC), the tollways unit of the MVP Group of Companies, on Thursday said it is providing free COVID-19 vaccines for its 3,814 employees.

In a statement, MPTC said it rolled out pre-registration for employees in its different business units and their dependents or household companions who want to get vaccinated.

An internal information campaign to encourage vaccination has also started, the tollways firm said.

“We have placed orders for vaccines from a number of foreign suppliers. These are more than sufficient to cover each and every one of our workforce. Our vaccination policy can be best described as inclusive and embracing as this includes our employees’ immediate families and kasambahays,” said MPTC chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan.

“We will cover the cost of vaccines for each employee as it is our responsibility to keep our workforce safe and secure,” MPCT president and CEO Rodrigo Franco said.
