As vaccine supplies increase, employers are expected to become more involved in the vaccination process by hosting worksite clinics and promoting the shot to their workers.

Businesses of all sizes can encourage widespread adoption of the COVID-19 vaccine. This ranges from helping educate workers about the benefits of these vaccines to taking concrete steps to help them get the shot. In all cases, these are important interventions that will help us put the economic and health crisis behind us.

Lead by Example: The most persuasive messages from employers are based on the personal commitment of business leaders to roll up their sleeves when they’re eligible to get the shot.

Make it Easy: Employers of all sizes can help workers gain access to the vaccine, create incentives, and offer accommodations that make it as easy as possible for them to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Remain Vigilant: If we’ve learned one thing over the last year it is the importance of vigilance. Employers can reinforce the importance of continued adherence to public health measures like masking and social distancing until we’re all fully vaccinated.

Make the Rally for Recovery Commitment … then make sure everyone knows you’re doing your part to fight the pandemic.
