Vaccination has started at Vonovia - around 80 employees vaccinated in Bochum on the first day

- Next week, around 100 employees a day are to be vaccinated on three separate days

- Vaccination facilities for the workforce are now also in place in other regions

- High uptake among workforce


Bochum, June 10, 2021 - The Bochum-based housing company Vonovia has launched its vaccination campaign for employees at its head office today. In a first delivery, around 1,000 doses were made available through the company's medical service and the German technical inspectorate TÜV. Of these, around 80 jabs were given on the first day, prioritizing employees with direct customer contact.

"Since the beginning of the pandemic, we've been doing everything we can at Vonovia to protect our colleagues. Vaccinating through our medical service is another important element on the way to normality. So I'm glad we can now get going and present this opportunity to our workforce," says CEO Rolf Buch at the start of the vaccination campaign. Like many other companies, Vonovia is hoping that its medical service will soon receive more doses from the German government.

Priority groups and random generator
Vonovia has been prepared to start its own vaccination campaign through its medical service for quite a while now. In fact, a test line to protect the workforce was already in place at Vonovia's canteen in March and has now been converted for Covid jabs within a very short time. In other regions, the facilities have been made available to the workforce at the various health centres of the company's medical services, and suitable vaccination rooms have been created on Vonovia's premises.

Initially, priority will be given to employees with direct customer contact in their work. Depending on their job, each person can book a vaccination appointment on a specially created online platform. While demand still exceeds supply, a random generator is used to determine the order in which staff are vaccinated.

The first ones to receive their jabs are very pleased now: "I've been trying to get an appointment outside the company, so I'm really happy that I've had my first jab now. It feels good to have better protection now. And it's good to know that our employer is supporting us," says Uwe Heinemann, craftsman at Vonovia. Until sufficient vaccine becomes available for the entire workforce, Vonovia recommends that employees get appointments through their GPs and the various vaccination centres. The company itself is under no obligation to vaccinate its workforce.
