Seventy to 80 percent of workers at the Freeport Area of Bataan (FAB) are now fully vaccinated, according to Administrator Emmanuel D. Pineda of the Authority of Freeport Area of Bataan (AFAB).
Pineda disclosed during the “Kapihan sa AFAB” on Tuesday that the freeport has been adjudged one of the efficient vaccination centers in the region if not in the whole country. “We were able to allocate enough funds for vaccination of our employees and factory workers,” he said.
FAB has more or less 40,000 workers most of whom were affected by the pandemic. For those workers who are still unvaccinated, the AFAB had been conducting regular testing for them, Pineda explained.
He assured that in case of new surge in Covif-19 cases in FAB “hindi na ganun ka grabe dahil marami na tayong workers na nabakunahan na.”
