AEPC encourages textile exporters to vaccinate workers

New Delhi

On instruction from the Textiles Minister, the Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) has asked 8000+ exporters in the country to take up the process of getting all their workers vaccinated. It has also asked these industries to use their CSR funds to set up temporary COVID care facilities and makeshift hospital settings.

The chairman of AEPC proposed this resolution in the executive committee meeting held last Friday after having a virtual meeting with Smriti Zubin Irani, Textiles Minister of India. Dr A Shaktivel, Chairman, AEPC, mentioned that the council wants to support the vaccination drive of the government of India and added that these industries will be able to procure vaccine doses from the manufacturers directly.

It is to be noted that the industries will have to follow all basic protocols needed for vaccination, including registering on the CoWIN platform, AEFI reporting, and following other government guidelines for the vaccination program.
