Global software majors Infosys and Accenture have announced that they will pay for the vaccination of their employees.
“We will cover the vaccination cost for our employees and their family as part of our focus on health and wellness,” said Infosys chief operating officer U B Pravin Rao in a statement in Bangalore.
The IT behemoth will partner with healthcare providers to vaccinate its techies under the guidelines of the government and as per the procedures.
The Indian arm of the US-based Accenture said it would also pay for vaccinating its employees and their dependents who are part of its medical programme.
“We will cover the cost for the vaccination of our employees and their dependents. We support the scientific and public health advice that encourages vaccination,” said the company in a statement here.
The Indian government has stepped up its vaccination drive in March to vaccinate senior citizens above 60 years and those with comorbidities above 45 years. Healthcare workers and frontline warriors across the country were given the jab starting January 16.
