Visit Maldives teams up with the Maldives Ministry of Tourism and introduces the ‘I’m Vaccinated’ campaign. It’s targeted to share an encouraging message in terms of vaccination of staff working in tourism along with promoting the efforts taken on to make sure that this small archipelagic state in South Asia remains one of the safest destinations for travelers.
The primary aim of this campaign is to make certain that the tourism sector of Maldives gets completely vaccinated. In addition to the unique geographical formation of the islands which provide natural physical distancing, along with severe health and safety protocols in place, in encouraging tourists to visit the destination, a completely vaccinated tourism sector will be an added advantage.
On 28th April, 2021, the campaign kick-started its initiatives during a press event, organized by Visit Maldives and the Maldives Ministry of Tourism. Joining the event were the Maldives Minister of Tourism, the Minister of State of the Ministry of Health, the Secretary General of Guesthouse Association of Maldives and the Vice Chairman of Maldives Association of Tourism Industry.
The event started with opening statements of Honorable Dr. Abdulla Mausoom, the Maldives Minister of Tourism, who remarked on the impact of COVID-19 on the tourism industry. He stressed on the huge sacrifices, efforts as well as hard work of the health industry, tourism industry, and all members of the Maldivian society. The Minister mentioned that succeeding in providing vaccinations to members of the tourism was a major achievement and officially initiated the ‘I’m Vaccinated’ campaign. This was followed by a short video displaying the logo of ‘I’m Vaccinated’.
While sharing his thoughts at the event, the Minister of State of the Ministry of Health, Dr. Shah Abdulla Mahir, highlighted that more than 65% of the eligible population of Maldives has received the vaccination and more than 90% of the eligible tourism industry people are already vaccinated. He was quite positive that the campaign would promote the Maldives’ vaccination drive even more and inspire the facilities of tourism to vaccinate their staff.
Later on, MMPRC presented the delegation with a special ‘I’m Vaccinated’ badge. The badge will be presented to members of the tourism industry who have received the prescribed dose(s) of the COVID-19 vaccine.
