Jollibee to vaccinate its employees for free

JOLLIBEE Foods Corp. (JFC) will provide free vaccines to all its employees in the Philippines, its owner said on Tuesday.

“Our employees’ safety and well-being has always been paramount,” said Tony Tan Caktiong, chairman of the Jollibee group of companies, said in a statement.

The vaccination program will cover employees from the company’s various food brands, including Jollibee, Chowking, Mang Inasal, Greenwich, Burger King, Red Ribbon, Panda Express, and PHO24.

Employees from JFC’s commissaries, distribution centers, support functions, and Jollibee Group Foundation will also be covered by the program.

JFC said it is also sourcing vaccines for their employees’ dependents and extended family, as well as other household members.

“Communication efforts like a series of webinars on vaccine education have been started to help employees make informed decisions on their health,” the company said.

The company’s vaccination plans will be adopting the guidelines of the government’s coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) task force and the Department of Health to support the country’s national vaccination program.

“Once the vaccines are available, the company will coordinate with local government units to optimize the available supply of vaccines,” the company added.

JFC incurred a net loss of P11.5 billion in 2020 due to the impact of COVID-19 in various store operations. According to a previous disclosure, operations in four commissaries and some 486 stores were permanently halted last year.

The company has since launched a business transformation program to rationalize operations amid the pandemic.

JFC shares at the stock exchange rose by 2.9% to close at P181 apiece on Tuesday. — Keren Concepcion G. Valmonte
