Talabat UAE, a food and quick commerce delivery platform, has announced the completion of its nationwide voluntary rider vaccination programme, with its entire fleet of over 15,000 riders fully vaccinated across all seven emirates.
Since its inception in December last year, the initiative was accomplished in close collaboration with the Department of Health - Abu Dhabi and Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (Seha), and the Ministry of Health and Prevention in less than a year.
Commenting on this achievement, Jérémy Doutté, Vice President UAE at talabat, said: ‘We are extremely grateful to our riders for choosing to vaccinate, and we are proud to say to customers that order through talabat that all of our riders have made this choice. By ensuring their safety, and that of the communities they serve, our riders are taking an active role in the UAE’s continued journey to recovery".
From the start of the pandemic, talabat has continued to take industry-leading safety measures against COVID-19, including the provision of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) to all riders, as well as offering customers options such as contactless delivery and cashless tipping.
