Jamshedpur: Committed to safeguarding the communities in and around its areas of operation to fight COVID-19, Tata Motors has achieved a unique feat of vaccinating all school children aged 15-18 years studying at the Tata Motors supported schools in Jamshedpur. More than 7200 teenagers were vaccinated within a month.
Tata Motors has led the preparedness to tackle the COVID-19 response in Jamshedpur and respond to the pandemic in case of mass infections as well as take all preventative actions. The team at the Tata Motors hospital, district administration, OHC (Occupational Health Centre) of the Jamshedpur Plant, and the residents of Jamshedpur have worked hand in hand to achieve 100 per cent vaccination for these children.
Launched on January 3, the team chalked out an extensive plan to register the children and organise vaccination camps at two locations in Jamshedpur to cover all eligible children across schools supported by Tata Motors. Besides vaccination, Tata Motors hospital staff are carrying on regular programmes for educating the children and their parents on COVID-19 protocols such as wearing proper masks, maintaining social distancing, frequent washing of hands, avoiding crowded places, unnecessary travel, etc.
Dr Sanjay Kumar, Head – Medical Services, Tata Motors Jamshedpur, said, “These children are our future citizens, and it is our responsibility to safeguard them. Maintaining the good health of children is important for ensuring the wellbeing of any nation. We are happy that we could immunise all children in the age group 15-18 years across all Tata Motors schools in Jamshedpur so soon. We would like to thank the parents too for coming forth and supporting the immunisation programme.
