Rapido vaccinates driver partners in Chennai | Chennai News


CHENNAI: Bike-taxi app Rapido has joined hands with the Greater Chennai Corporation to vaccinate its driver partners in a free vaccination drive conducted in the city. The drivers are part of the essential ride-sharing and delivery fleet and include specially-abled captains.
The members were administered the first dose of Covishield, with all required precautions, safety measures and post vaccination protocols followed to ensure protection, a statement from the company said. All vaccinated drivers will be administered the second dose as per the defined period of 80 days between two doses.
On the launch of the #RapidoCaptainVaccination programme, Pavan Guntupalli, co-founder, Rapido, said, “Vaccination is a key step in our country’s fight against the pandemic. As one of the leading players in the Indian mobility and ride sharing ecosystem, we take our commitment to safeguarding our customers and captains through this vaccination drive. While bike taxis themselves are an open and safe way to commute during the pandemic, we are providing another layer of protection. We thank the Chennai city Corporation for helping us put this drive together.”
Rapido plans to have additional vaccination drives in the city as per the availability of the vaccination stocks. The company announced several other initiatives such as safety back shields for bike taxi rides.
