HDFC Bank Ltd. on Friday said it will cover the vaccination cost for its over 1 lakh employees and their family members.

The bank will sponsor the inoculation of over 1 lakh employees of the bank and their immediate family members against coronavirus. The bank will reimburse vaccination cost for the two mandated doses, the lender said in a statement.

"Our employees have shown exemplary perseverance, professionalism and dedication to serve millions of customers. Covering the cost of vaccination for our employees and their dependent family members is a small gesture from the organisation to express our gratitude to our employees," Vinay Razdan, Group Head of Human Resources, HDFC Bank, said.

Ashima Bhat, Group Head, HDFC Bank, said all employees of the bank are like the frontline workers, who ensured that an essential service like banking was available for customers even during the lockdown.

"For their health and safety, we are ensuring that our employees and their dependent family members are inoculated and protected from Covid-19," she said.

Earlier this week, ICICI Bank too had informed about bearing the cost of vaccination for nearly 1 lakh employees and their next of kin.

A number of corporate houses have announced to bear the cost of vaccination of their employees and family members. These include Infosys Ltd., Reliance Industries Ltd. Cognizant, Accenture, Sify Technologies and Capgemini.
