ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel India (AM/NS India) has so far vaccinated as many as 40,000 people comprising the company’s workforce, their family members and business associates with the first dose of Covid vaccine. AM/NS India privately procured Covishield vaccine from the Serum Institute of India administered the jabs to eligible candidates at its vaccination centres, set up across operations in Gujarat, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, etc.
The vaccines were administered as per government directives and only after registration on the Cowin app. AM/NS India had made it mandatory for employees and business associates to have at least one dose to enter its premises, thus encouraging them to take the vaccination as soon as possible.
Efforts to administer the second dose are under way.
Anil Matoo, Head – Human Resources, IR & Administration–AM/NS India, said, “Vaccination is the best solution that allows us to protect our communities, and we hope initiatives such as this will help minimise the spread and best protect the country.”
