COVID-19 Vaccines: Key Considerations for Employers

The U.S. has reached a milestone in its vaccination efforts, with new data showing that more than 25% of adults have been fully vaccinated and approximately 40 percent of adults and 75 percent of seniors have received at least one dose. As COVID-19 vaccine supply and distribution continues to improve, the U.S. is leading the world in total vaccines administered. Vaccination rates are climbing to an average of 3 million doses administered daily and drug makers have promised to deliver enough shots to vaccinate 300 million people by the end of May. With commitment from the federal government for increasing supply, all states have now opened eligibility to everyone over 16 years. As employers prepare for a safe return to the workplace, access to reliable and up to-date health, safety, educational and compliance information is essential. It is important to note that the data reflected in this paper are captured at a point in time and could change rapidly in the current environment.
