Ajinomoto Foods North America’s Vaccine Update
Ajinomoto Foods North America’s COVID-19 Vaccine Update
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – May 3, 2021 – Now that the COVID-19 vaccine is becoming more broadly available, Ajinomoto Foods North America wants to be an important resource for our employees to learn and make decisions about getting the vaccine.
While we are not mandating vaccinations of all employees, vaccines are a safe, effective way for us to protect our teammates, families and communities and we encourage our employees to get vaccinated. We understand getting vaccinated is a personal, medical decision. While it is certainly a personal decision, getting the COVD-19 vaccine provides an added layer of protection that will make it possible for us to continue our essential operations while keeping our employees safe.
As the counties we operate in have begun to move into Phase 1B of the COVID-19 vaccine distribution, meaning essential food and agriculture workers are becoming eligible, we are working to assist all of our employees wishing to be vaccinated access to the vaccine. Because the different states we operate in are taking phased approaches to vaccine distribution, we are doing what we can to support our team and make the process as convenient as possible by partnering with local health departments and third-party organizations to provide access.
