“The company hopes to vaccinate 100% of its service professionals with at least one dose by the end of May, and two doses by the end of June, subject to how the government opens up vaccination for people aged 18-45,” the statement added.

Speaking on the initiative, Abhiraj Singh Bhal, Co-Founder & CEO of Urban Company said, “Safety of service partners and customers is our topmost priority. In the past year, we have implemented stringent safety protocols, including the usage of masks, gloves & face shields, daily temperature checks, single-use sachets and disposables, sanitization of all tools before the service delivery, health, and safety training, and cashless transactions. Further, we launched COVID-19 insurance and income protection plans for our service partners.”

“Today, we take our safety efforts one step further by announcing free and priority access to COVID-19 vaccines for all our service partners. We are committed to working closely with local governments and healthcare providers towards this endeavor over the next several weeks. This is a natural step towards safeguarding the health of our service partners,” Abhiraj added.

Adding to the statement, Urban Company further said, “It is educating service partners on the benefits of getting vaccinated, and encouraging all service partners to get themselves vaccinated for their personal as well as the customer’s well-being.”
