By providing information about COVID-19 vaccination and establishing supportive policies and practices, you can help increase vaccine uptake among your employees. Emerging trends in the Health Care survey show that up to 70% of employers are willing to pay for their staff to get vaccinated.
And although COVID-19 vaccine supply is currently limited, it’s not too early to share clear, complete, and accurate messages, promote confidence in decisions to get vaccinated, and engage employees in plans to address potential barriers to vaccination.
The information presented below can help employers prepare for vaccination either at the workplace or when the vaccine becomes readily available in the community.
- Providing information on the vaccination and the status of its availability.
- Addressing vaccine safety and efficacy questions
- Providing information as to locations and where vaccinations may be performed.
Finally, managers can't know how a worker might react to the vaccine, so it's wise to prepare for a few staff members to take time off if necessary—even if they are relatively young and healthy. In the interim, while we wait for the vaccinations to roll out – remember to keep your work environment safe by continuing to follow strict COVID protocols instore.
