The AAL Employees’ Union and company’s Medical Officer Vijaykumar had jointly organised the in-house immunisation drive.

Deputy Commissioner Rohini Sindhuri inaugurated the drive on the company premises and described it as a positive step in the ongoing fight against the pandemic.

Lingaraju, Joint Director, District Industries Centre, Mysuru, oversaw the drive.

He said the organisation was ready to provide its fully-equipped occupational health centre and other facilities for the local community for vaccination drives.

Mr. Muthukumar thanked the district health officials and Apollo Hospitals for their support in carrying out the workplace vaccination drive at AAL.
