Get your booster at the car wash
The world is currently boosting its way out of the pandemic and in Germany they go a long way to achieve that goal. It’s now even possible to get a booster shot at a car wash. The only condition is that you work at Mr. Wash Autoservice.
The German carwash company wants to get as many employees vaccinated against Covid19 as possible. So they launched a nationwide campaign to make it as easy as possible.
They put the bar as low as possible, Mr. Wash employees will even continue to get paid while they get their booster shot. “We can make this offer because we already have a very high vaccination rate in our workforce,” said Richard Enning, CEO of Mr. Wash.
This is the second time Mr. Wash has supported the federal government’s vaccination campaign. Back in 2021, the company offered all staff willing to be vaccinated a bonus of 40 euros if he or she got vaccinated. Furthermore, employees with language barriers were actively supported in making an appointment at the vaccination center. The company even offered a “vaccination shuttle”.
As a result of these measures, the vaccination rate in some branches is 95 to 100 percent. “We are therefore very pleased that we have come through the pandemic with comparatively very few cases so far,” Enning notes. In addition to the vaccination, all employees are tested before they start work. The company practiced this long before the law required it.
Mr. Wash employs around 1,600 people and, in addition to its headquarters in Essen, currently has 35 branches nationwide.
