The COVID-19 vaccination programme has started at Walton Hi-Tech Industries Limited (WHIL), the country’s largest electronics, electricals, and IT devices manufacturing industries.

WHIL Deputy Managing Director Alamgir Alam Sarker inaugurated the vaccination programme at Walton factory premises at Chandra in Gazipur on Thursday morning.

Among others, WHIL Senior Executive Directors Yeasir Al Imran and Mohsin Sardar, Executive Director Anwarul Islam and First Senior Deputy Operative Director Tanvir Ahmed were also present.

The covid-19 vaccination program is being carried out across the country to prevent epidemics by ensuring public health protection from corona infection. The sooner most people in the country are vaccinated, the faster the corona infection will decrease.

To further accelerate the government’s effort, Walton initiated the COVID-19 vaccination programme to bring its large number of personnel under the corona vaccine coverage.

Walton authorities said, the vaccination program will run from 10 am to 4 pm every day except holidays. The Gazipur Civil Surgeon's Office is assisting in this activity.

Yasir Al Imran said, "We always give priority to the employee’s health. It is possible to keep the factory running only if they are healthy. All the employees of Walton factory will be brought under the 100 percent immunization program. Walton employees are spontaneously participating in vaccination activities. One and a half thousand factory workers were vaccinated with the first dose of COVID-19 on the first day of the program on Saturday. Walton plans to bring 2,500 workers daily under the vaccination.

It is to be noted that Walton has been bringing its employees under vaccination from the beginning of the immunization program in the country. Earlier, Walton observed ‘COVID-19 Special Safety Week’ to protect the health of its employees. Through this program, Walton employees have received free COVID-19 test, vaccine registration and medical support.
