The global coronavirus pandemic caused a serious threat to our health and wellness. To ensure the safety of its workforce, the EMB-NCR provided two-day mandatory flu vaccination to all of its employees on July 28-29, 2020 at the Conference room of EMB-NCR, as part of the Health and Wellness Program of Gender and Development (GAD). The GAD focal Point System spearheaded the said activity in coordination with Pharma Quest Co. and SANOFI PASTEUR medical team.

This activity aimed to protect the health and workplace of employees of EMB-NCR against influenza that can cause mild to severe illness. The Quadrivalent Flu Vaccine is formulated to protect us against four different influenza viruses namely influenza A (H1N1) virus, influenza A (H3N2) virus, and two influenza B viruses.

Engr. Florence V. Velasquez, Chief, Finance and Admin Division and GAD Focal Person with the full support of Regional Director Don Clemente, Jr., led and supported the program. She believes that protecting the health of employees must be prioritized to enable the Office to continue serving its clients better amidst the Corona Virus 19 pandemic.
