Monday, 19 April, 2021
Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, during a visit to the headquarters of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. in Lubin, announced new vaccination rules, including the launch of an enterprise vaccination system. The President of KGHM Marcin Chludziński assured that the company is ready to carry out the vaccination campaign for the employees.
"In order to make the vaccination process more dynamic in Poland, we are introducing new rules and new vaccination routes. That is why today, in Lower Silesia, from Lubin, from KGHM - the pearl of our industry - I am announcing that starting in the second decade of May, we will be implementing a vaccination programme in enterprises. We want to carry out this process as quickly as possible. That is why, among others, we are opening Public Vaccination Points. As soon as the ordered millions of doses of vaccines arrive, we will definitely speed up. It will be a breakthrough, I am convinced of that," Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said during the press conference at KGHM.
The Prime Minister congratulated KGHM on its financial results and thanked it for its collaborative efforts in the fight against the pandemic.
The President of KGHM Marcin Chludziński stressed that the safety and health of employees is of paramount importance in the copper company. "Thanks to this approach, we are working without any interruptions related to the coronavirus pandemic. We are already preparing to organise vaccinations for all employees and I would like to thank you very much for this opportunity. We will be able to continue to work peacefully and meet our economic targets. This is how we understand our mission: we generate profits, provide work and invest", added Marcin Chludziński, President of KGHM.
KGHM is practically ready to carry out the employee vaccination campaign. Voluntary vaccinations will be carried out at the Miedziowe Centrum Zdrowia in Lubin, which already has two points dedicated exclusively to such activities. A third point will be launched in the next few days. Vaccinations at the MCZ are carried out throughout the week, including during weekends. The hospital has already managed to vaccinate nearly 20 thousand inhabitants of the Copper Belt.
Since November 2020, the MCZ also has a covid ward with more than 50 beds. Operation of the ward does not affect the work of the rest of the hospital. Patients suffering from coronavirus are cared for by doctors and nurses who work only at this facility. KGHM also helped to build temporary covid hospitals in Wałbrzych and Legnica. In Legnica, the facility will continue to operate after the end of the pandemic. Different wards will be relocated there.
