ekincare, a health benefits platform that helps companies administer benefits efficiently, optimize healthcare spends and show real health outcomes, has announced partnership with 1mg to drive out covid-19 vaccination and hence help fight the spread of the second wave. The vaccination drive is carried out with 100% compliance with government directives. 500+ corporates will benefit from the vaccination drives.
As COVID-19 cases steadily increase and the risks of exposure get higher as well, the Government of India has stated the importance of setting up vaccination drives at workplaces and increasing the efficacy of the vaccination drives in an official circular.ekincare, one of India’s leading employee healthcare management companies, initiated its first ever COVID-19 vaccination drive for employees and their dependents from March 8th, 2021. Since then, 100+ clients have already registered with them, resulting in 3L+ vaccinations demands for employees and their dependents.
After being the first healthcare company to take this initiative, ekincare is now at the forefront to conduct workplace vaccinations to battle COVID as well. However, while healthcare companies across the country are doing their part, in times of crisis it is often important to join forces to battle ever-rising odds.
