Melco resorts, staff vaccination rate

Melco Resorts & Entertainment has reached close to 95 percent vaccination rate for its Macau staff.

The effort is part of Melco’s Get the Jab program, in which the Company earmarked $16 million in incentives towards the goal of increasing immunity. T

Melco said the second Get the Jab $3 million ($375,000) lucky draw was hosted Saturday, with three fully vaccinated colleagues each winning $1 million. The cash prize drawing was hosted by Mr. Lawrence Ho, Chairman & CEO of Melco Resorts & Entertainment.

“Macau remains one of the safest regions in the world thanks to the government’s careful handling of the global pandemic, and we applaud the government’s effort to further increase vaccination rates towards the goal of increasing immunity in Macau,” Ho said. “Melco continues to encourage vaccination uptake as a key company objective that will help to ensure a safe environment for colleagues, guests, and the community at large.

“Thanks to strong participation in the Get the Jab vaccination incentive campaign, Melco’s vaccination rate in Macau has reached close to 95 percent. We look forward to further travel integration between mainland China and Macau once Macau achieves an acceptable vaccination rate. We remain fully committed to doing our part for the betterment of the community.”
