TVS will vaccinate all of its employees and their families
The Indian motorcycle industry will provide the vaccine to its workers free of charge
TVS is currently the third largest motorcycle manufacturer in India and has owned the British company Norton for less than a year. Production is four million vehicles per year, which are exported to more than 60 countries.
The health crisis due to the pandemic risked reducing production rates and for this reason the company took a radical decision. All its employees and their families will be vaccinated for free, for a total of 35,000 people.
In addition to using vaccines already approved by the World Health Organization, the company could also use the new Covaxin. It is the first medicament of this type developed in India and its effectiveness is 81%
