Vision Properties Development Corporation employees share why they decided to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
According to the World Health Organization, vaccination is a safe and effective way to prevent disease and save lives – now more than ever. When we get vaccinated, we aren’t just protecting ourselves, but also those around us. Some people, like those who are seriously ill, are advised not to get certain vaccines – so they depend on the rest of us to get vaccinated and help reduce the spread of disease.
Vision Properties Development Corporation (VPDC) employees are doing their part and taking an active role in the fight against COVID-19 by choosing to get vaccinated through their Local Government Units.
“In this time of uncertainty, our health is the most important thing to consider. Which is why I decided to get vaccinated.”
says VPDC Internal Audit Head, Raineier Fampulme, on why he decided to get vaccinated against COVID-19. He goes on to share that he feels happier, safer, and protected not just for himself but for the people around him.
COVID-19 vaccines are an important tool to help stop the pandemic and VPDC’s leaders are committed to getting vaccinated to help build confidence in vaccines.
Just this week, a number of VPDC’s Project Managers and Department Heads participated in Quezon City’s mass vaccination program “QC-PROTEKTODO”, in partnership with the Philippine Constructors Association and St. Luke’s Medical Center Quezon City.
“Vaccine is important as it gives us add-on protection, boosting the immune system and peace of mind. Keep in mind that prevention is better than cure.” says VPDC ESH Senior Supervisor Ryan Revidad on vaccination.

He further adds “as an individual going in and out of our homes performing essential tasks by providing the needs of the family, we are exposed to different kinds of threats and one of these threats is the COVID-19 virus. I decided to get vaccinated for my family, to increase my chances of fighting and preventing the spread of COVID19 virus at work and within our homes. At the end of the day the most important thing in our life are those loved ones waiting for our safe return to our homes.”
“I miss being home. In these trying times, being with my family in the province is the least I can do. Having a 14 day quarantine, securing lot's of passes and documents has been among the most challenging . That is the reason why I decided to get vaccinated to allow me to travel back home -- safe and hassle free. I will be able to enjoy the holiday without the risk of visiting an emergency local hospital or bringing back the unwanted bugs.” say VPDC Head of Commercial and Contracts Zarah Izee Indidano. She goes on to share that “when enough people are vaccinated against the infectious disease like COVID-19 it can effectively stop from spreading, because there are too few to infect. I am glad that VPDC has the same goal as mine -- creating an environment free from COVID-19. For if we are safe in the office, we are safe at home and in the community. My vaccination is a drop in a very large bucket, but a drop nonetheless.”
Safety is one of the core values of VPDC and we know that to be truly successful, we must take personal responsibility for the safety of ourselves and those around us, both at work and at home -- including getting vaccinated against COVID-19.
