Cummins Inc. Reaches COVID-19 Vaccination Milestone With Mobile on-Site Clinics
COVID-19 restrictions are beginning to loosen up in different parts of the world, as more people are becoming fully vaccinated. Cummins began offering COVID-19 vaccines for its workforce and their dependents through mobile on-site clinics on April 1.
The first mobile on-site clinic and vaccination was in Columbus, Indiana; now in just three months the company has administered its 15,000th COVID-19 vaccination, and it was at an on-site clinic in India.
“As we celebrate this milestone, we know there are many more waiting to be vaccinated, but are not able to, or do not have access,” said Bob Chestnut, Cummins Chief Medical Director. “We continue to work with local governments and health care providers around the globe to help make approved vaccines available to our employees, contingent workers and their eligible dependents.”
To date, Cummins has hosted clinics in the following U.S. communities: Columbus, Indiana; Seymour, Indiana; Rocky Mount, North Carolina; Cookeville, Tennessee; Memphis, Tennessee; Jamestown, New York; Fridley, Minnesota; and Mineral Point, Wisconsin. The company has also hosted clinics in China, Mexico and India.
Although the mobile vaccinations are continuing, Dr. Chestnut encourages Cummins employees to take advantage of vaccination opportunities in their local communities, and not wait for a mobile on-site clinic.
