Saudi Ministry of Health, represented by the Dammam Health Network ? in cooperation with the Jazlah Water Desalination Company, has finished vaccinating more than 850 employees working in the Jubail 3A project for seawater desalination
The initiative is part of the national campaign which was launched in accordance with the royal directives issued by the custodian of the two holy mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, to combat the spread of Covid-19 in the Kingdom, and falls within the framework of the continuous efforts led by the government to vaccinate all citizens and residents in the Kingdom against the virus.
The implementation of the vaccination campaign comes within ACWA Power?s commitment to preserve the health and safety of its people, including employees, partners and contractors, in compliance with the precautionary measures implemented by the Ministry of Health and official authorities to ensure that all citizens and residents are vaccinated, and within the framework of the preventive measures applied by the Saudi government and all relevant authorities to curb the spread of the virus in the kingdom.
"With this high-speed achievement, accompanied by the highest level of preventive and professional measures in implementing the vaccination campaign at the Jubail 3 project site, I would like to extend on my own behalf and on behalf of ACWA Power's board of directors, my deepest thanks and appreciation to the Ministry of Health for their tremendous efforts and continuous cooperation with us to provide the finest medical services related to the vaccination campaign. I would also like to express my deepest thanks and appreciation to Dr Tawfiq bin Fawzan Al-Rabiah, minister of health, and all employees of the Ministry, including doctors, administrators and technicians, for their dedication to carrying out this noble humanitarian duty with determination, competence and efficiency, setting the most wonderful examples of giving and devotion in the service of our citizens and residents," commented Mohammad Abunayyan, chairman at ACWA Power.
"The application of all precautionary measures in our sites reflects our support for the national procedures and programmes established by the Ministry of Health and the competent authorities in order to enhance the fight against the pandemic and to ensure safety. We will continue our solidarity and close cooperation with the Ministry of Health to ensure the immunisation of all our employees and affiliates, which contributes to providing the highest levels of safety and security for everyone in all our project sites and stations," Abunayyan pointed out.
In July 2020, ACWA Power constructed of an integrated field hospital with a capacity of 100 beds in Medina. This was transferred to the Ministry of Health in less than 60 days and was implemented with the participation of the national energy sector in enhancing the efforts of the Saudi government and the Ministry of Health to confront the repercussions of the Covid-19 pandemic in the Kingdom.
