Two stakeholders from the business sector and the academe extended their gratitude to Mayor Evelio Leonardia following the conduct of vaccination drives for their workers and personnel, a press release from Bacolod City PIO.
These are Teleperformance Bacolod and Trinity Christian School.
“Your generous support through the years has been greatly influential in our continued growth and stellar performance as we open doors to new opportunities in Bacolod City. It is your continued support that sustains our mission and makes all the difference,” wrote Teleperformance Philippines vice president for Human Resources Rachel Cacabelos and Human Capital Resource Management senior vice president Jeffrey Johnson in their letter to Leonardia dated 17 August.
The City Government’s vaccination drive has inoculated 409 of the more than 1,000 target employees of Teleperformance during a vaccination drive at Ayala Malls Capitol Central last 14 August.
Also on 4 August, Teleperformance Bacolod was given a certificate of Safety Seal by the City Government.
The Safety Seal Certification Program is a certification scheme affirming that an establishment or public transportation unit has been inspected by the government and was found compliant with Minimum Public Health Standards (MPHS), is using or its contact tracing is integrated with StaySafe.ph, and the establishment or public transportation unit possesses the requisite business permits or franchise.
“The unwavering support extended to Teleperformance only reaffirms the commitment of the city government to uphold the health and safety of all Bacolodnons,” said Cacabelos.
Meanwhile, a vaccination drive was also conducted at Trinity Christian School (TCS) on Wednesday, 25 August 2021.
The school vaccination program was held through the collaborative efforts of the City Government and TCS.
TCS principal Esther Uy conferred to Leonardia a certificate of appreciation for the latter’s “invaluable support and partnership” extended to TCS in light of the school vaccination drive.
Uy also recognized Leonardia’s “extraordinary effort” in trying to make Bacolod City free from COVID-19.
There is no letup in Bacolod’s vaccination campaign. Various strategies to curb the spread of COVID-19 are now in place, including the 24-hour VAX Clinic, VAX-i Mobile Bus, and drive-thru vaccination, among others.
“Our goal is to make the vaccination program more accessible to everyone so we can achieve herd immunity and eradicate Covid-19 as fast as possible,” the mayor had stressed.
The City’s vaccine rollout is being supervised by City Administrator Em Ang, executive director of the Emergency Operations Center and coordinator of the Covid-19 Vaccination Council, OIC-City Health Officer Dr. Edwin Miraflor Jr., and EOC deputies medical Dr. Chris Sorongon and Dr. Anna Maria Laarni Pornan, with the assistance of barangay officials and vaccination doctors.*/CITY PIO
