Precaution and prevention are the two words that surround our thoughts and activities every day during the COVID-19 pandemic. The entire world has been fearful of getting infected with the minacious coronavirus since its emergence in 2020. Mass-immunization against COVID-19 is vital to saving lives during this unprecedented global pandemic. Supported by Perficient leadership, the Nagpur, India office created an initiative to vaccinate their entire team, as well as their family members, to fight the spread of COVID-19 in the community.
Protecting Our Colleagues and Community
Perficient’s COVID-19 vaccination drive took place on Saturday, June 26th at the Perficient Nagpur office. Kingsway Hospital partnered with Perficient and provided an onsite team of doctors and supporting medical staff to administer the vaccinations. Post-vaccination, everyone was kept under careful observation to ensure that they did not have any immediate negative side effects. Perficient followed government-mandated safety protocols by enforcing social distancing, requiring masks, and frequent sanitizing throughout the event. Separate booths were kept for Men and Women.
“This was a wonderful experience for me and my family to get vaccinated at Perficient Nagpur. We appreciate Perficient Nagpur management and the medical volunteers for taking up the initiative and making it easier for us to get the vaccine.”
Mukesh Soni, Director
This preventive immunization drive was not only a step towards safeguarding our colleagues, but the entire Nagpur community and people throughout world, by battling the spread of the coronavirus through vaccination.
“Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is of paramount importance to humankind right now. With appointments being unavailable at all the vaccination centers, the vaccination drive at Perficient came as a saviour to me. I was looking for convenient options to get the shot.”
Neha Pasi, Senior Technical Consultant

Colleagues were excited to visit with each other in person, as they have been working remote during the pandemic.

Perficient Nagpur looks forward to hosting a second immunization drive so that all our colleagues and their families are protected from the dreaded coronavirus.
