COVID-19 vaccination drive was organised for the employees above 18 years of age of JD Institute of Fashion Technology, Bangalore free of cost. The camp was conducted at the Brigade Road campus.
The country is battling the pandemic catastrophe. Coronavirus cases have crossed the 16 lakh mark in Karnataka alone. Keeping the safety of all their employees in mind, the design institute held the vaccination drive on May 1, 2021 in collaboration with Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) after the government decided to open up COVID-19 vaccination for all adults, effective May 1. Covishield vaccine was administered on the employees which is developed by the Oxford-AstraZeneca and manufactured by the Serum Institute of India (SII).
The COVID-19 vaccination was carried out free of cost by JD Institute of Fashion Technology for its employees for which the employees had to register online. Prior to the vaccination all the recipients had to submit their negative RT-PCR reports. All the safety protocols like wearing the face mask, sanitizing and social distancing were carried out as per the Government mandate during the vaccination drive.
During such times it is imperative to provide all the support required for the employees. Though there is a lot of skepticism and uncertainty during such times and especially around getting vaccinated, it is important to encourage everyone to take the vaccine to ensure that there is reduced risk of exposure to the virus.
As the country is in the middle of a second wave which has been worse than the first one, the purpose of the COVID-19 vaccination drive was way to help our employees to develop strong immune response against the virus. Everyone is facing the same battle and as responsible citizens we must prioritise getting vaccinated rather than falling prey to the misconceptions and rumors surrounding vaccination.
Post the first round of the COVID-19 vaccination the employees will continue to work from home, remain under self-isolation, avoid work related travel or physical meeting.
