In an effort to aid the Government’s vaccination program to fight the Covid19 pandemic, BookMyShow, India’s leading entertainment destination has undertaken a pan-India community vaccination drive for the entertainment industry, corporate India and residential societies in its effort to support the country’s recovery process.
The initiative which started in early June, has covered over 1,45,000 people across categories by helping facilitate vaccine jabs for all.
As part of the drive, BookMyShow has partnered with leading hospitals and healthcare facilities across cities while providing the complete logistics, technology & manpower support, access validation and on-ground infrastructure assistance to medical staff and consumers to book their slots.
The pan-India drive that covers the overall community including the entertainment industry, corporates and residential societies all across has been undertaken through partnerships with leading hospital partners and medical chains such as Apollo Clinics, Medica Superspeciality Hospital, AMRI Hospitals, Peerless Hospital and Techno India DAMA Healthcare & Medical Centre.
BookMyShow’s vaccination initiative not only empowers the community with added convenience through accessible and easier vaccine booking but also uses the platform’s technology and infrastructure strength for efficient inventory management and reduction of vaccine wastage.
The initiative is not restricted to partners that work with BookMyShow but open to all members of the entertainment industry. Employees and family members of several media & entertainment firms including PVR Cinemas, Percept, Balaji Telefilms, Motley Theatre Group, 70 Event Media Group (70 EMG), Hungama Digital Media and Production Crew to name a few, have been inoculated through the BookMyShow vaccination drive.
Further BookASmile, the charity initiative of BookMyShow is working towards the inoculation of 1,111 underprivileged artists from low-income communities in the live entertainment industry whose livelihoods have been adversely impacted due to the pandemic. BookASmile has collaborated with Mumbai-based NGO Accha Karo Foundation to facilitate vaccination for these artists and crew.
