Talley’s chief executive Tony Hazlett says the company is aiming to have more than 80% of its staff vaccinated as soon as possible and it is liaising with local district health boards to organise vaccination drives on-site.
“We recognise that having New Zealanders vaccinated is an important line of our defence in combating Covid-19,” Hazlett said.
“We are encouraging everyone at Talley’s to get vaccinated, but as an essential business we have been operating under level 4 and level 3, so getting out to get a jab is not that easy for our staff.
“To help our staff, we are looking to work with district health boards to have clinics on our sites, and we also support people to go to local clinics during work time if necessary.”
Over the last week, Nelson Bays Primary Health and Nelson Marlborough Health held two clinics, one on Talley’s Nelson site, and one in Motueka.
