Hilton’s Bali hotels host COVID-19 vaccination drive; almost 4,000 Team Members and residents of the surrounding community inoculated against the virus. In a show of support for the fight against COVID-19, Hilton’s hotels in Bali participated as venue hosts for the island’s recent vaccination drive, inviting all eligible Team Members and residents of the surrounding community to inoculate themselves against the virus.
Initiated by the local government and tourism bodies including the Ministry of Tourism and Ministry of Health, the vaccination programme was made available to all hotel Team Members and members of the community at no cost. Across Conrad Bali Resort, Hilton Bali Resort and Hilton Garden Inn Bali Ngurah Rai Airport, more than 800 Team Members from the three hotels received the vaccinations while Conrad Bali Resort and Hilton Bali Resort also supported more than 3,000 local residents in Bali in the drive. Spouses and partners of the hotels’ Team Members were also invited to be a part of the programme.
“Since we entered Bali over a decade ago, our hotels have worked closely with local community partners to initiate various programmes towards the sustainability of the local community and we are honored to now be able to do our part in this global fight against the pandemic for the locals in Bali. This is a significant step forward by the authorities towards the reopening of Bali’s borders in a safe manner and it is extremely encouraging to see the number of people coming forward to receive the vaccination,” said Andre Gomez, regional general manager, Indonesia and Timor Leste, Hilton.
The vaccination programme took place over three days, from 27 to 29 March 2021. The hotels also provided meals for frontline workers involved in administering the vaccinations.
