NovaLink recently initiated a coronavirus vaccine program for their employees with the goal of protecting the health of their associates and the surrounding communities from the spread of COVID-19.
Coordinating with government authorities in the US & Mexico, the vaccination process offered to the employees gave priority for the employees in the “at risk” age/health groups (people over age 60 & pre-existing medical conditions, ages 50 to 59 and 40 to 49) by providing transportation, any associated expenses, paid time off and administrative paperwork support. In total, NovaLink transported 317 employees from Matamoros to Brownsville Texas, to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
The vaccine initiative continued to be a tremendous success in the following weeks when NovaLink worked with local Mexican agencies to transport and provide paid time off to the remaining 1,600 employees that opted to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Matamoros. NovaLink has 97% of the staff vaccinated (at least a single dose) and expect shortly to have the entire company completely vaccinated.
“We are extremely proud of and grateful to all of our employees for taking this brave step of protecting themselves, their families, coworkers and community at large. Well done!” said Jason Wolfe, NovaLink CEO.
