Globally, analysts have been indicating the third wave of COVID-19 to be more disastrous than the second one and are pushing for breaking the chain. To support the Indian economy and to encourage people to get vaccination across India, Arzooo, an Indian B2B retail-tech startup has announced a large-scale vaccination drive for every retail shop owner in consumer durable in India with an incentive plan where it pays them for every vaccination done.
All a shop owner has to do is get vaccinated. Then, post vaccination, they have to upload their vaccination certificate on the Arzooo app. An instant refund of INR 400 will be credited to them.
There are over 50,000 retail shops for consumer durables and Arzooo’s vaccination drive is open for 100% of them, including those who are not on the Arzooo platform. This promotion drive aims to create awareness as well as encourage people to get their vaccinations.
“The retail community has been the most vulnerable ever since the spread of virus began as they deal with numerous visitors everyday which makes them most exposed to the COVID-19 danger. More so with consumer electronics retailers as there is a lot of interaction with every shopper. With this drive, we aim to safeguard our business partners and the electronics industry in general by doing our bit for them in these tough times,” said Khushnud Khan, Co-founder, CEO Arzooo.
Earlier in May, Arzooo also launched a slot finding feature on their website where one can check for the vaccine availability as per his/her pin code or district. The new feature also helps the users in finding nearby vaccination center and can also share notification when the vaccine slots are available.
Before the drive for the retailer community, Arzooo has also initiated a free vaccine drive for all of its employees. Not only this, the company took the decision to absorb 100% cost of testing and treatment for all its employees including white and blue collars. The Tech Panda
