Chennai #daimler #india Commercial Vehicles (DICV) today announced that it has begun free vaccination for #truck drivers of all brands at the company’s on-site vaccination centre in Oragadam Plant. Over 60 drivers were vaccinated on the first day, adding to DICV’s growing count of third party vaccinations. DICV has already inoculated over 3000 supplier staff and third party contractors on-site, in addition to over 3000 employees and dependents.

Mr. Satyakam Arya, MD & CEO, #daimler #india Commercial Vehicles, said “Vaccination is India’s best hope for surviving the pandemic and returning to normalcy. We at DICV are proud to do our part to ensure the #health and well-being of our employees and their loved ones by providing easy access to free, safe vaccination and a comprehensive support program.

DICV began a fully company-sponsored vaccination drive in May for employees and dependents. Within two months, the company achieved its mission of having ensured at least one dose for all medically-eligible employees entering any of its premises nation-wide, and is striving to achieve full, two-dose vaccination for both employees and dependents at the earliest possible timing.

DICV has rolled out over 100 initiatives during the pandemic to support its stakeholders and help prevent the spread of COVID-19. In addition to its internally-developed #health and wellness app, the company has also conducted dozens of educational webinars to inform stakeholders on the need for vaccination and social distancing.
