EACOM WELCOMES A MOBILE VACCINATION CLINIC FOR ITS EMPLOYEES, FAMILIES AND CONTRACTORS IN NAIRN CENTRE

Nairn Centre, July 27, 2021 –Public Health Sudbury & Districts’ mobile clinic will be present at EACOM’s Nairn Centre sawmill to offer COVID-19 vaccination to employees, their families and contractors. The operation aims to facilitate access to the vaccine for those who didn’t have the opportunity to attend a regular vaccination clinic.

“Protecting our employees and the community has always been a priority for us. With all the COVID-19 related directives and preventive measures, our people have made many efforts and adjustments to their work environment to protect their colleagues, that offering them an easy access to vaccination was the logical next step to accelerate the return to a new normalcy” explains Éric Larouche, Vice-President of Human Resources at EACOM.

Earlier this year, EACOM Timber Corporation announced the rollout of an incentive program to thank employees and contractors who get vaccinated with the objective of reaching the 85 percent vaccination rate among the staff.

EACOM does all it can to encourage its employees and contractors, whether it’s a $350 bonus from the COVID-19 Vaccination Thank-You Program or welcoming mobile clinics.
The employees and contractors of the Nairn Centre sawmill were invited to express their interest to the Human Resources Department to provide enough doses. All measures are taken to ensure the security and confidentiality of employees and contractors.
