Bikano, a market leading brand with piquant packaged snacks to relish, has showcased its new potential in providing on-site vaccination to its workers. In the bid, company vaccinated all its 220 employees in a drive organised at production sites and made sure the security and healthiness of employees.

Government allowed free vaccination for all but teenagers and infants since then company picked its role in compassionate and caring way. Since, vaccination is the only way to protect lives of near and dear ones so it turns mandatory.

Manish Aggarwal, director, Bikano, said, “At a time of such great uncertainty and fear, when people are not sure how the pandemic would play out in the coming months, or if there is a third wave coming our way with even more deadly mutants and variants as is being widely discussed in public forums as well as private conversations, getting oneself vaccinated is perhaps the most practicable way of protecting and keeping safe against the deadly virus. Of course, Government has done all that it can to accelerate the pace of vaccination intending to inoculate as many Indians as possible in as little time. However, we understand that there are practical challenges relating to supply, logistics and administration which have hindered the progress of the campaign as desired. As a result, many willing people wanting to be injected as soon as possible have failed to receive their injections. And among them, there were several of our employees who were looking to get the jab, but were not being able to do so due to various reasons. With all that in mind, we took it upon ourselves to make arrangements with hospitals and vaccine manufacturers to ensure that our employees were inoculated well in time and remained in the so-called safe zone. And in this endeavour, Apollo Hospital, Sharda Hospital and Civil Hospital Sonipat have proved to be our valued partners.”

“Moreover, as questions of economy and livelihoods compel the authorities to increasingly ease the lockdowns and relax rules on physical mobility, a substantial part of the workforce so far working from home has resumed their regular duties physically from office premises like before. This obviously necessitate full protection for such employees as well as protection of others from them as an asymptomatic person carrying the virus would be a threat to those around him when he steps outdoors. At the same time, vaccinating the employees and bringing some of them to work from office premises or other places as required would also galvanise our business operations and efficiency thereby helping us contribute to the national mission of reviving the economy in a better and more effective way,” concluded Aggarwal.

Bikano roped in medical giants such as Sharda Hospital and Apollo Hospital for Vaccination drives and organised drives at several sites including company corporate head-office and factories.
