When will your organization employees receive the vaccine? Learn where your team members fit in the plan.
The Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines have received approval and are now being administered to Phase 1a recipients: health care personnel and long-term care facility residents. On December 20, the CDC released recommendations regarding the rollout of the vaccine to the next groups.
To determine when your employees will be eligible for vaccinations, you need to know how they are classified. For example, the CDC recommends that “frontline essential workers” receive the vaccine before “other essential workers,” so it is essential to understand who falls into each of these categories. Despite the national guidelines, each state has the authority to set priorities and definitions, further complicating timeline predictions.
Vaccine availability and possible shortages create more uncertainty.
- When will office workers and others be able to get the COVID-19 vaccine?
- How are states deciding how to distribute the vaccine?
- Should you make it mandatory to get the vaccine?
- Will states require people to get the vaccine?
- Will you need to provide accommodations for those who cannot take a vaccine?
- What if there is a vaccine shortage and only half your staff can get the vaccine?
- What vaccine policies and procedures should you implement?
