Macau.- Galaxy Entertainment has announced a series of initiatives on Covid-19 vaccination.

The company will hold a Covid-19 Vaccine Information Seminar on June 1 and June 2. The programme will be hosted by Dr. Tai Wa Hou, representative of the Health Bureau of the Macau SAR Government who will explain the benefits of getting vaccinated.

That will be followed by the opening of a vaccination point inside its property to vaccinate 1,500 to 1,800 team members and their family members between June 10 and June 12.

All those Galaxy Entertainment employees who get vaccinated with the first and the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine will get up to two days of “special vaccine leave” to rest.

Galaxy Entertainment stated: “[The company] would like to take this opportunity to encourage team members and the public to work together and show our best in preventing and controlling the pandemic.”

The Ministry of Health has reported a total of 100,194 people in Macau have been vaccinated with at least one dose while 59,823 have received two doses.

Macau casino operators host vaccination initiatives

Apart from Galaxy Entertainment, other casino operators have taken similar decisions to help Macau’s government encourage people to get vaccinated.

Casino operators MGM China and Sands China hosted vaccination services last week. MGM saw 1,200 of its employees get vaccinated.

Kenneth Xiaofeng, MGM China President and CFO, stated: “We will continue to talk to the government to see what kind of programmes we might continue to develop.

“We will closely follow the government, directives to make sure more and more employees get the vaccine so that mainland visitors can have more and more confidence in visiting Macau.”

Melco Resorts launched an “immunity incentive programme” to encourage its employees to get vaccinated against Covid-19. It will give each employee a bonus of MOP1,000 (US$125) after getting the vaccine.

Melco Resorts is working in coordination with the Macau Health Bureau and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. It is arranging shuttle transportation for staff to attend vaccination appointments and grants staff two full days of paid vaccine leave.
