A vaccination programme is being rolled out for our seafarers worldwide.
Since the very beginning of the pandemic, the Group has been planning a complete, safe, and free vaccination program for our staff, especially to the seafarers on the front line in keeping the global economy moving.
Thome Group managed tanker vessel M/T Turquoise, was at Corpus Christi terminal, USA on 13th May 2021 for cargo operations. The crew onboard voluntarily got vaccinated against the COVID -19 virus with the J&J single dose JANSSEN vaccine administrated by the Nueces county health department in association with The Corpus Christi Seamen’s Center at the bottom of the gangway.
We would like to thank the US Health Department, Seamen Centers, NAMMA, port agents who have assisted us with the vaccination drive. Several Thome-managed vessels will be calling various US ports in the coming weeks, and the crew will get the opportunity to get vaccinated.
Thome Group strongly encourages their seafarers to vaccinate themselves against the COVID-19 virus as it is one of the best ways to protect themselves and others against the virus.
More vaccination initiatives are already underway for the rest of the Thome seafarers in the near future. Stay updated.
