As a result of a very close coordination maintained between Neil Marine and the Government Health Authorities, on the 12th of last month, the health officials conducted a covid 19 vaccination program where all employees were inoculated with renowned Sinopharm vaccine. This is a confidence boost for every employee keeping in mind that they still have to maintain the guidelines laid out by the health authorities for protection against the virus.

Right from the beginning, special emphasis was given to allocate highest priority to health protocols and all hygienic requirements and social distancing not only at the work place but with the continuous dialogue with the employees exchange their home environments and proper advice and guidelines were/are being given. The corporation from everyone equally was very encouraging.

Since the 2nd vaccine is also due within a month, the management of Neil Marine is in liaison with the area health authorities to have a similar program arranged in order to get our staff and employees inoculated in time.

In this endeavor we hope that every member of the organization will stay safe and healthy during this trying time.
