  • I’ve shared about my positive experience getting vaccinated, and how COVID-19 vaccines have helped me get back to the moments I’ve missed with family and friends.

  • I’ve shared trusted information about vaccines.

  • I’m offering paid time off to my employees, contractors and part-time, hourly and seasonal workers for vaccine appointments, as well as time off to recover from possible side effects.

  • I’m offering paid time off for parents to take eligible children to get vaccinated and recover from possible side effects.

  • I’ve made it easier for workers to get vaccinated by offering a transportation voucher, a meal stipend, child care, or other small incentives.

  • I’ve encouraged my employees to search, text their ZIP code to 438829, or call 1-800-232-0233 to find vaccine locations near them.
  • I’ve dedicated time at a staff meeting to lead a conversation about the safety and benefits of COVID-19 vaccines, and answer employee questions.

  • I’ve reached out to workers who’ve been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 or who may have unique concerns or need extra help accessing vaccines.

  • I’ve encouraged my employees and workers to visit and talk to their healthcare provider if they have additional questions.

  • I’ve contacted my local public health department to explore whether I can host an on-site vaccination clinic for workers and their families, or support community vaccination efforts.

  • I’m offering customer discounts, coupons or other incentives to customers who are fully vaccinated.

  • I’m following CDC’s latest mask guidance and taking other precautions to prevent the spread.
