Clark’s 115K workers to be covered by CDC’s vaccine program
Clark Development Corporation (CDC) will launch a Covid-19 vaccination program that will cover the whole Clark community, covering all its 115,000 workers, according to the Philippine Information Agency.
CDC vice president for administration and finance Mariza Mandocdoc said in a PIA report that all workers and residents in Clark would be inoculated against Covid-19.
“We will do that in collaboration with the locators. We are working with the locators for them to pay the vaccines of their employees,” she was quoted as saying.
“That means we want all the 115,000 plus workers here in Clark to be protected against the virus so that they will no longer add to the burden of the local government units (LGUs) where they are residing,” Mandocdoc said in the report.
A tripartite agreement will be signed among CDC, the locators, and the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF).
“We do not have a preferred vaccine brand. Our selection and procurement process will be done in coordination with the IATF. We also could not identify a target date now because we rely on the national government for that,” Mandocdoc said.
CDC president and CEO Manuel Gaerlan recently met with the Metro Clark Advisory Council members to discuss areas of cooperation in the vaccine roll out in the contiguous communities of the Freeport.
