“I am very thankful for Ternium putting on a very successful flu and COVID vaccine drive at our plant. Most of all I am very thankful for our teammates and their families for coming out and participating in this event… We spend a lot of time informing everybody about the importance of getting the vaccine for our community, for our company, for our families. I like to see the enthusiasm that people are displaying in this event heading into the fall and into the winter, and right in the middle of the Delta variant spike. It is very important for all of us to be as protected as we cannot just for COVID but also for the flu. I'm thanking the Human Resources Department for taking the time and effort to get people out here and put on a nice event; particularly for doing this on site at three different times during the day for our people to be able to participate.”
