Bengaluru: Global software majors Infosys and Accenture on Wednesday told they would pay for the vaccination of their employees. "We will cover the vaccination price for our employees and their family as part of our focus on health and wellness," told Infosys chief operating officer U B Pravin Rao in a statement here. 

The city-based IT behemoth will partner with healthcare providers to vaccinate its techies under the guidelines of the government and as per the procedures. The Indian arm of the US-based Accenture told it would also pay for vaccinating its employees and their dependents who are part of its medical programme. "We will cover the cost for the vaccination of our employees and their dependents. We support the scientific and public health advice that encourages vaccination," told the company in a statement here. 

The government has stepped up its vaccination drive on March 1 to vaccinate senior citizens above 60 years and those with comorbidities above 45 years after healthcare workers and frontline warriors have been given the jab since January 16 across the country.
