Kruger has helped to provide vaccines to over 2,500 people in the first month of operating its mobile vaccination clinic in Quebec.

The company partnered with the Integrated University Health and Social Services Centre (CIUSSS) for the Mauricie and Centre-du-Québec regions, and with the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (UQTR) on the project.

Kruger has supplied the bus that is being used as the mobile clinic, as well as the necessary resources to operate it.

The mobile clinic, which launched May 18, is touring the Maurice and Centre-du-Québec areas to reach more vulnerable people, as well as municipalities and workers at their place of work, including some Kruger employees from its two Trois-Rivières facilities. So far, the bus has visited 19 different places and provided vaccinations for 2,577 people.

“As soon as there was a call for business to help and support the vaccination efforts, we raised our hands at Kruger,” said Gino Lévesque, senior vice-president, Kruger Packaging, at the mobile clinic launch event.

“It was only natural for us to take part in this collective effort and we are very happy to have helped make this project a reality.”
