Titan is offering on-site COVID-19 vaccination opportunities free of charge for employees at its Des Moines, Iowa, facility. 

The Des Moines clinic is part of a larger company initiative to vaccinate employees at its US locations.

“At Titan, we take great care to protect our employees at all times and especially this past year against COVID-19,” said Titan president and CEO, Paul Reitz.

“Since day one of the pandemic, our coronavirus response team has executed plans to keep our employees safe and help our teams adjust accordingly while also providing farmers and construction professionals with American-made products they need to perform their essential work.”

The on-site vaccination clinic at the Des Moines facility started in mid-April, with second doses scheduled for after the required waiting period. Vaccines will be administered to employees by licenced health-care professionals and will be available during all three work shifts.

In February, Titan worked with Blessing Health System to provide COVID-19 vaccines to employees at its Quincy, Illinois, location and in March, there was a coordinated effort with the Stephenson County (Illinois) Health Department to make the vaccine available to Titan employees in Freeport, Illinois.

Titan is also working with local health organisations to set up vaccination clinics at other locations and production facilities throughout the world.

The supplier said its facilities will continue to practice social distancing and other preventive measures to reduce the spread of germs, as well as uphold its own internal safety and cleanliness protocols.
