The vaccination campaign in the fight against the coronavirus is picking up steam. As part of a model project, Endress+Hauser is operating a vaccination centre for employees in Maulburg. The Baden-Wurttemberg Ministry for Social Services, in collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce, chose the location as one of 12 pilot companies where company physicians are permitted to carry out Covid-19 vaccinations.
The vaccination centre opened on 20 May and will initially be in operation until mid-June. During this time, employees from Endress+Hauser Maulburg, as well as employees at August Faller in Binzen and Schopfheim, will be vaccinated.
Accelerating the vaccination campaign
Endress+Hauser Level+Pressure applied for the model project ‘Vaccinations through Company Physicians’ together with August Faller. Through the program, the pilot companies will support the regional vaccination campaigns and relieve the workload of the vaccination centres and medical practitioners. “We’re extremely pleased that we were able to begin vaccinating,” says Dr Peter Selders, managing director of Endress+Hauser Level+Pressure. He also views participation in the model project as an expression of social responsibility. “We want to make our contribution to the acceleration of the vaccination campaign.”
Dr Alexander Graf, head of regional economic policy at the Hochrein-Bodensee Chamber of Commerce, stressed the importance of the model project. “Endress+Hauser established a professional vaccination centre within a short period of time. The experience from the pilot programmes will help to expand the rollout of company-provided vaccinations.”
After the Ministry of Social Services made its selection for the model project, a team at Endress+Hauser Level+Pressure immediately developed a plan for the vaccination centre in Maulburg. The centre is located in the foyer area, where vaccination cubicles and a rest area were set up in two large conference rooms. Vaccination appointments are made via the company’s own platform.
Expertise from pharmaceuticals and medicine
The Maulburg location offers the ideal conditions for a vaccination centre as it has suitable space and can easily provide capacity for professional cooling and storage of the vaccination vials, thus ensuring that the vaccines do not thaw and go to waste. As a manufacturing company, creating and setting up organisational processes is one of Endress+Hauser’s strengths.
