The Workplace Vaccination Program website was updated March 16, 2021.   This website is extremely valuable for information and resources regarding COVID-19 vaccination in our workplaces. 

“By providing information about COVID-19 vaccination and establishing supportive policies and practices, employers can help increase vaccine uptake among essential workers. Although COVID-19 vaccine supply is currently limited, it’s not too early to share clear, complete, and accurate messages, promote confidence in the decision to get vaccinated, and engage your employees in plans to address potential barriers to vaccination. Strong confidence in the vaccines within your workplace leads to more people getting vaccinated, which leads to fewer COVID-19 illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths.

The information presented below can help employers prepare for vaccination either at the workplace or when vaccine becomes available in the community. CDC makes recommendations for who should get the vaccine first, then each state makes its own plan.”
