Galaxy Entertainment joins vaccination awareness drive

GEG-vaccine drive

[Press Release]

To give team members a thorough understanding of the COVID-19 vaccines, Galaxy Entertainment Group (“GEG”) held two COVID-19 Vaccine Information Seminars for its team members on June 1 and 2 at the Ballroom of Banyan Tree Macau at Galaxy Macau™️, and invited Dr. Tai Wa Hou, representative of the Health Bureau of the Macau SAR Government, President of the Macau Physician Association of Public Hospital and Clinical Director of the Public Conde S. Januário Hospital Center, and related staff to explain about the vaccines. Amid heightened awareness of recurring outbreaks in the neighbouring cities, the two seminars received immense attention among GEG’s team members and attracted more than 700 team members to attend.

Due to popular demand for enrolment and the need for social distancing measures of keeping seats one meter apart during the seminars, GEG arranged an online live broadcast with the aim to engage more team members. During the seminars, Dr. Tai Wa Hou and the related staff provided GEG team members with details regarding the vaccines’ efficacy, who should or should not get vaccinated, as well as other important information. In addition, Dr. Tai Wa Hou gave team members an in-depth analysis of the imported cases, and answered team members’ questions during the Q&A session in hopes of helping them make their own decisions.

In light of the recent situation in the neighbouring cities, Dr. Tai Wa Hou said, “Residents in Macau should continue to support and executive the related preventive measures, and get vaccinated as soon as possible, because vaccination is the most effective way to protect the health of oneself and one’s family. To show full support to COVID-19 prevention and control, large enterprises, including GEG, proactively support the Macau SAR Government’s call to encourage team members and their family members to get vaccinated by arranging seminars and setting up vaccination points. The positive response from these seminars demonstrates that information is highly valued by the participants. Focusing on helping team members understand the efficacy and safety of each COVID-19 vaccine, the seminars aim to help participants make decisions based on their own needs so that they can join society on safeguarding the health and safety of the Macau community.”

Following the two COVID-19 Vaccine Information Seminars, GEG has arranged for the Health Bureau to set up a Vaccination Point at Galaxy Macau between June 10 and 12, which can serve 1,500 to 1,800 team members and their family members over the three- day period, and help Macau come closer to building herd immunity.
