FDCP Fully Vaccinates 5,000+ Film & Entertainment Workers through its #GoodJab Vax Program
MANILA, PHILIPPINES, OCTOBER 26, 2021 — A total of 5,102 film and audiovisual workers have been fully vaccinated under the Film Development Council of the Philippines’ (FDCP) #GoodJab Vaccination Program in partnership with the Quezon City (QC) and Manila City Government.
The third and last batch to complete the inoculation of 3,500 workers under the City of Manila’s “Vaccine Nation is the Solution” Program, received their second doses at Adamson University on October 18. The second dose vaccination program that started on September 29 is also part of the final activities of last month’s Philippine Film Industry Month.
In this collaboration with the City of Manila Health Department with Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso, the FDCP National Registry (NR) successfully carried out the vaccination of 3,500 film and AV workers. FDCP’s #GoodJAB and Manila’s “Vaccine Nation is the Solution” are supported by SIP Purified Water.
Last June, the 1,500 FDCP-registered film workers were vaccinated in the “Bakuna Nights para sa Film at Entertainment Workers” of the FDCP and QC Government through the #QCProtekTODO program at the Quezon City Hall Vaccination Site.
“With the recent developments, including our fully vaccinated film workers, things are looking up for the local film industry. This will not be possible without the help of our stakeholders who believe in the importance of our film workers’ safety especially in these trying times. Many thanks to Mayor Isko Moreno, Mayor Joy Belmonte, and their vaccination teams, as well as FDCP’s National Registry team and FDCP employees who volunteered and provided full assistance,” said FDCP Chairperson and CEO Liza Diño.
The 5,102 vaccinated workers are all FDCP NR registrants. The national film agency compiled and submitted the list of National Registry for Audiovisual Workers (NRAW) registrants with their information and required documents to the City of Manila and Quezon City.
