The plan is to be able to administer approximately 20,000 doses per week. Other companies such as Melia, Balearia, Vueling and the car rental association Baleval will also help with the plan by providing support for travel, transport and accommodation of professionals and materials.
“The preventive measures SEAT put in place, even before the health crisis became a global pandemic, were instrumental in ensuring our employees stayed safe. As a result, we’ve made of SEAT a European ‘Green Zone’ with a very low number of infections. Additionally, we’ve vaccinated over 10,000 of our workers and suppliers so far, and 70 per cent of our workforce over 40 years old are already immunised” said Dr. Patricia Such, SEAT’s Health, Safety and Emergency Director.
“Now we’ve made it our mission to help the regional Health Authorities with their vaccination effort with the aim of steadily moving together towards the long-awaited new normality that we all want so much,” she added.
