Etisalat rolled out its vaccination programme for eligible employees across the UAE in co-ordination with the Ministry of Health.
The inoculation drive began on Wednesday at Etisalat’s Abu Dhabi headquarters Building A where a station was set up for employees to conveniently get the vaccine free of charge. The initiative is in line with UAE's plan to vaccinate more than 50 per cent of the country's population by the end of March.
Etisalat is making the Sinopharm vaccine accessible to its employees at selected buildings across the UAE.
While vaccination is optional, Etisalat is encouraging its employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine jab to protect themselves and their families. So far, more than 2,500 employees have signed up for the first dose of the vaccine.
