SUBIC BAY FREEPORT––A business process outsourcing (BPO) company in this free port initiated on Wednesday, Aug. 11, a vaccine program for its 280 employees as part of the government’s inoculation drive for essential workers or A4 priority.

In a statement, the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) said the mass vaccination of TeleEmpire Inc.’s employees was the second privately-initiated jab program here. It was held two weeks after the government launched its vaccination drive for A4, which was done inside this free port.

The SBMA said the project was held in partnership with the Department of Health, which assisted in vaccine access.

“I hope more companies in Subic would follow suit to have their employees vaccinated so that we all can have peace of mind while going about our businesses,” said Wilma Eisma, SBMA chair, and administrator.
