ALC members get better access to COVID-19 vaccines
The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) and the Pharmacy Guild of Australia have announced a ground-breaking industry association partnership, providing ALC members access to the Guild Corporate COVID-19 vaccination program.
The program will allow for immediate access to vaccinations for ALC member companies and their workforces through up to 3,500 pharmacy locations across Australia. The Guild Corporate Vaccination Program provides another pathway for essential freight and supply chain workers to get vaccinated, at a place and time convenient to them.
The agreement is the first of its kind for industry associations partnering with the Pharmacy Guild.
ALC CEO Brad Williams welcomes the partnership, saying it adds another option for ALC member companies in their efforts to get their workforces vaccinated.
"Supply chain workers continue to be the unsung heroes of the pandemic. We hope by providing additional options for our member organisations to access vaccines, this will go some way to alleviating the pressure they are under with testing regimes and border restrictions."
