MPT South Moves a Step Closer to Herd Immunity

Sigrid C. Shun, JULY 2021

Last July 2, 2021, MPT South executives joined MVP Group’s first batch of employees at the Meralco compound in Pasig City for the administration of the first tranche of company-procured Moderna doses.

The launch site is one of several facilities the MVP Group has identified in administering all the vaccinations in National Capital Region (NCR) Plus. Among those to be activated by the second week of July are PLDT Sta. Ana in Manila, Smart Tower in Makati, Maynilad Balara in Quezon City and NLEX Sta. Rita in Bulacan. The rollout will take place up to December, depending mainly on the arrival of Moderna and AstraZeneca vaccines.

By end of July, a total of 61 MPT South employees will get vaccinated out of the 283 who registered with the MVP Group Vaccine Program. In addition, 32 MPT South employees already had their vaccine from their respective Local Government Units (LGUs). Thus, 23% closer to the 80% goal of herd immunity.

“Inoculating the population from the virus does not just reduce the number of infections and deaths but minimizes the possibility of new mutations and variants, taking us a step closer towards the paramount goal of herd immunity.”

Manuel V. Pangilinan
