Mercedes-Benz Research and Development India (MBRDI), in partnership with medical institutions in Bengaluru and Pune, has commenced its all-expenses paid vaccination drive for over 6,000 employees and their dependants. Being held in a phased manner, in a zero-compromise approach, following all prescribed Covid-19 appropriate behaviours, the drive will help more than 20,000 recipients receive their doses of the prescribed vaccines.
Speaking on the drive, Manu Saale, Managing Director and CEO, MBRDI said, “We are committed to safeguarding the wellbeing of our employees and their family members and this vaccination drive is yet another step in that direction. An uncompromised, robust preparation in holding these drives on company premises, adhering to all guidelines, means we do all in our capacity to offer a safe and controlled environment to the beneficiaries. We are thankful to the partner medical institutions for joining us in this endeavour.”
He further added, “It is encouraging to see the kind of reception the first leg of this drive has received internally and I am proud of the rousing solidarity our teams and colleagues have demonstrated in fighting the pandemic, together. Furthermore, it is our endeavour that people beyond the MBRDI family are able to receive the vaccinations and our efforts are on in reaching out to them.”
MBRDI has partnered with Manipal Hospitals, ACT Grants, and Columbia Asia Hospitals across Bengaluru and Pune for the vaccination drive. To ensure maximum people have access to the Covid-19 vaccination, for each inoculation for its employees or their dependants, MBRDI with its collaboration with ACT Grants, will donate one for an external beneficiary from the frontline workforce.
