As part of its COVID19 response agenda, the executive and management team of the TDC Group of Companies has taken another proactive step towards educating its staff about the COVID19 vaccination programme presently ongoing in the Federation.
On Thursday 1st April 2021, by invitation, Mrs. Latoya Matthew-Duncan, Nutrition Surveillance Coordinator, in the Health Promotion Unit of the Ministry of Health, made an informative presentation to a wide cross-section of the staff at the TDC Training Room on Fort Street in Basseterre.
Immediately following the well-received session, a Covid-19 Vaccination Clinic led by Nurse Williams-Campbell from Community Health Services and supported by her team, Nurses Warner, Busse, and Hodge to administer the Oxford-AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine.
The first dose was administered to Mr. Earle Kelly, Group Chairman, followed by senior managers and other staff who willingly volunteered to receive their jab to protect themselves from contracting the deadly disease.
According to Mr. Kelly, “the COVID-19 vaccination program, like all similar programs in the past is very important to ensure the protection and long-term health and well-being of our staff, customers, and by extension their families.”
He further added, “We have strongly encouraged all our staff to take full advantage of the opportunity to attend today’s session. TDC continues to play our part in achieving the seventy percent (70%) target, in the short term, to return to normalcy and re-open the economy fully.”
The staff in attendance praised the timely initiative and many are eagerly looking forward to receiving their second dose in the coming weeks.
A similar session is already being organized for the staff on Nevis in partnership with the Health Promotion Unit (HPU).
