With COVID-19 vaccines rolling out across Canada and the United States, Graham Construction is doing their part to encourage employees to get a vaccine with their “I Got the Shot” campaign.

“The health and safety of our employees and communities is of utmost importance to Graham,” says Andy Trewick, president and CEO. “

We are in this pandemic together. It’s therefore important for all of us to do what we can to come out of it together – safely, healthy and as quickly as possible.”

The campaign has employees submitting post-vaccine selfies and sharing their reasons for getting vaccinated on Graham’s website and sharing the “I Got the Shot” badge and hashtag on
social media.

“I got the shot to travel again safely visiting family and friends,” wrote Graham communications advisor Vicky Stey.

“I can’t wait to hug my Oma in Germany. This is one shot closer to normalcy.”

An employee named Stewart wrote that he got the shot “to help protect my friends, family, colleagues, neighbours and community. Let’s all do our part to protect each other and get back to the things we enjoy.”

A Fort Saskatchewan-based employee named Adam shared that he was vaccinated “because it will help keep me, my daughters, our unborn baby, and my fiance healthy.”

The company’s website notes that as the vaccines become more readily available and more age groups become eligible they encourage all Graham employees and workforce partners to participate in the campaign.

Graham Construction have significant crane operations, with a fleet of mobile cranes that see use in everything from large infrastructure projects to low rise structures that require mobility in a lack of space. The company also has a versatile fleet of 14 tower cranes used for a wide variety of applications.
